Clara Lhee LaCroix has had her fair share of suffering—first her partner and then her baby. Amid hardship, Clara keeps busy as owner of Crossroads Ranch, the “biggest mustang training facility” that uses equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) for those undergoing counseling. Adversity hits again when an accident involving one of the ranch’s transporting trucks and a seventeen-year-old drunk driver (Andy Black Hawk) results in the death of Big Ben, her deceased partner’s beloved horse.

This is a story about the past as well as about the present. It makes us aware of the wrongs that have been done, as well as of the wrongs that are still being done, although you'd assume that people know better now. Let's face it, we all have prejudices, but we can fight to overcome them and give everybody a fair chance. The lead character, Clara, has prejudices about the native Americans, based on experiences. In my country, lots of people have prejudices based on nothing. Though the former is [...]

Interesting, entertaining and engaging. The story itself is well written, heartbreaking and thought-provoking. It's one of those stories that stays with you long after you've finished it.This story will make you stop and think. As the story unfolds it shows some the many different layers of discrimination that persist in our world. How our background effects each of us and how we think about certain things and events even though we may not realize it. Judging another ethnic group by just an idea [...]

No Dogs or Indians: Lisa HareA book that peels back the layers of human emotions all the way, to show the listener how ugly attitudes can be even if you think you are a good person. Stereotyping another ethnic group because of actions of some is shown and how unfair it can be. When a person tries to break the cyclical effects of addiction and abuse is scoffed at, it is sad.Wild Mustangs that are rounded up and taken to a preserve "for their own good," show the plight of certain ethnic groups. Th [...]

This is a novel about a ranch and horses, about Native Americans and prejudices, about loss and recovery, and finally about hope. The story is set in Nebraska on the border of South Dakota near the Sioux reservation and begins with tragedy and loss. This is a theme that is carried throughout the novel but it is not a sad book, exactly. I'd say more that it is an honest book. I am a horse person so I found a lot to like with this book. Any person who was enamoured with "Wild Horse Annie" and the [...]

Inspiring and educational I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even with some heartbreaking and uncomfortable sections and issues. I follow the effort to humanely deal with America's Mustangs, even though I support the effort to tame, train and find these horses good forever homes, this book illustrated another viewpoint
