Monty Roberts has traveled the world working with difficult horses. He has trained Queen Elizabeth's yearlings, jittery stallions on movie sets, and million-dollar race horses. In each case, he controls the animal without using force or inflicting pain. Monty's father, a traditional horse trainer, had taught his son to dominate a horse in order to "break" it. But when he was 13, Monty made a discovery that changed his life. As he watched a mare tame a rebellious colt, Monty saw that she was speaking to it through eye and body movements. Astonished, Monty realized that he could train horses by using their language, speaking to them in ways that would form trust and understanding. Developing techniques based on what he learned from the horses around him, Monty embarked on a remarkable career-one that would bring him international fame as the real Horse Whisperer. Now, in his own words, he shares the story of his memorable life. An immediate best-seller, The Man Who Listens to Horses is filled with courage, compassion, and Roberts' vast affection for his best friend, the horse.

Professional reviews

"Not THE Horse Whisperer of Nicholas Evans's novel, but A horse whisperer, Monty Roberts has a personal history more engaging than many novels. He writes with the special clarity of someone who has no pretentions as a writer, but has a story he very much wants to tell and a deep understanding of his subject. This book is effective in audio much in the manner of good, non-theatrical storytelling--it's more like a conversation than a performance. Ed Sala's reading at first seems flat and deliberate. But it soon becomes apparent that he has achieved precisely the right tone for Robert's straightforward style. J.N. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
