"Man & Horse" is all I'd hoped it would be. The adventure would be compelling told by anyone but John has a way with words. No surprise since he's a talented songwriter. His language is simple, direct and I couldn't put the book down. I finished it in two sittings over a 24 hour period.
John's description of being bitten several times by a black widow spider made me feel his excruciating pain. His encounter with a nasty mayor and deputy showed the patience he'd learned on the ride and from Gizmo. His self-deprecation appears throughout the book and I know that it is genuine. He's not a grandstander and that becomes obvious.
His love, concern and admiration for Gizmo runs throughout the book and his telling of Gizmo's passing years after the ride was over brought a tear to my eye although it was not a maudlin telling.
When John waxes philosophical, as he does now and again, he speaks with a wisdom learned from decades of living in the world of music and the world of horses. His wisdom is deceptively simple yet it is obvious he's spent a good deal of time mulling it over. He doesn't beat one over the head with it but just lets it flow as a part of his narrative. And a provocative narrative it is!
Thank you, John.
