Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 069239012X, Paperback)The door lay in shattered pieces scattered across the floor as my father flipped back his vest to reveal the gun he always carried. "I'm tired of you being so mouthy. You better learn to watch your tone with me."
I stuck my face right in his, leaned in, and yelled at full volume. "Pull the gun!" There came a point when living no longer mattered. It didn't matter if you lived or died, as long as the torment ended.
I never knew if it was Dad's joy of intimidation, his apparent need to push the boundaries of society as far as possible, or his mental illness that brought him to that point in the spring of '91.
But I knew what had brought me there. It all started on June 1 of 1979, when my mother drove me down to a neighbor's of ours in rural Dayton, Maine to see a new-born foal and my life changed forever. At the ripe age of nine, I met and fell in love with the horse who would become my best-friend, alter-ego, and confidant for the next twenty-five years.
A gripping coming-of-age memoir about finding yourself, over-coming abuse, learning how to value and protect yourself and those you love, but most of all about the power of love and how it can change your destiny.
