Mark Sahaabout this book: These seven stories, told with a heartfelt mix of humor and compassion, offer a unique look at a changing American landscape:

• "Whiskey Creek" > Gus Harlan lost everything to the bottle except his beloved horse Misty and is now sued by activists who deem him unfit to possess an animal companion.
• "Wide River" > A young kill buyer falls in love with a girl who thinks he finds loving homes for horses whose owners can no longer afford to keep them.
• "The Blind Horse" > Johnny Wexler's old gray gelding may be blind and useless but is aggravatingly intent on living out its time on this earth like anybody else.
• "Grandpa Goes to Mexico" > When his wife dies, a quixotic old man sets out for Mexico on horseback in search of the young Hispanic girl who was smitten with him in his youth.
• "The Getaway of Eddie Lee Jessup" > The expansion of railroads and telegraph lines promises to finally tame the Old West, but fugitive Eddie Lee has a scheme to outwit the new technologies on horseback.
• "Lost Horses" > A country crossroads store owner refuses to remove a horse trough, considered a public nuisance and safety hazard, because he believes the horse is going to make a comeback.
