Many people have already discovered the famous "horse whisperer" Monty Roberts through his television programmes and his first book 'The Man Who Listens to Horses.' But in 'Shy Boy', readers are given a much closer, more intimate picture of Monty Roberts and his relationship with just one horse.
Monty Roberts has demonstrated his gift for communicating with horses and has shown how his technique of "joining-up" can be applied by others. But no-one ever imagined or believed that he could apply these methods to a wild horse.
And yet, Monty Roberts, in the company of professional observers, using only his gentle methods, joins up with a wild mustang in the high Nevada desert. The story of the days when this unique relationship with Shy Boy is formed is dramatic and tender, moving and exciting.
Even non-riders will find Monty Roberts' descriptions of his experiences with horses and with people fascinating and inspiring, and will fall in love with Shy Boy as much as Monty did.
