Equines are big business in this country, and that's not to be taken lightly, but as anyone who has spent much time around them knows, horses have a sense of themselves and refuse to be pigeon-holed, catalogued or otherwise restrained. When they are given their due as individual personalities, as they are in this book, an occasional startled giggle has to result. Calling on forty-plus years of experience, extensive research, and lots of trial-and-error, Joanne Friedman has put together a celebration of life with horses. A horseman's most important piece of equipment is a sense of humor, and Friedman liberally spices her advice with horse laughs. Whenever horses are called on to participate in human enlightenment, they do so with great enthusiasm and good humor. Meet the horses that populate Friedman's world, and your perception of life with horses will never be the same. Join Friedman and the horses of Gallant Hope Farm as they slog through mud season, experience Murphy's Law in full effect at a show, set up a (mostly) working farm, and learn about clicker training. Your perception of life with horses will never be the same.

It’s 1945. The war is over and Matt McCartan is mustered out of the army just in time to attend his father’s funeral. Matt and his father always had an estranged relationship and because of that Matt knows almost nothing about his father’s life and childhood. While going through his father’s papers he discovers a single clue that might shed light on who his father was: a faded envelope with a return address of Ballyturan, Ireland. Seeking further information, he composes a letter to the village priest asking if he, or someone in the village, knew his father. The priest doesn’t respond, but a young woman does and her shocking letter sets Matt off on a journey of discovery to find out not only who his father was, but who he is. He arrives at Ballyturan, a small village on the Dingle Peninsula, only to learn that there is more to this sleepy village than meets the eye. Why does the village priest lie to him? Why does the richest man in Dingle threaten him? And what secrets are the village butcher and a local farmer keeping from him? The only one in Ballyturan who seems to have any answers is a man whom everyone in the village thinks is mad. But to Matt, he’s the only one in Ballyturan who makes sense. Eventually, Matt peels away layer upon layer of secrecy and mendacity and treachery to uncover the shocking and unhappy sad truth about his father.
