"I've got a gun under my seat, so don't try anything." Such were the types of rides Scott Zamek encountered after chucking his job, donning a backpack, and hitchhiking 10,000 miles around the dusty roads of America. The Hitchhiker's Guide to Life puts us in the passenger seat, right next to the bizarre assortment of characters who pull over to offer a friendly lift--from movie actors, fading rock stars, and gun-toting criminals, to drug dealers and battle-hardened army lieutenants. And of course, none of them fail to offer their extensive views on subjects such as fire ants, Doctor Who, and Ghidorah the three-headed monster, or even a sure-fire way to survive a chemical attack if you happen to lose your gas mask on zero day.
Yet, we are constantly reminded that the nature of travel is also deeply philosophical. This story is about living a life without boundaries, about removing the chains forged by modern society; it is a poetic account of the hidden corners of America, a reminder that parts of this world have yet to succumb to the steel blade of a contractor's backhoe. In the end, we are left looking inside ourselves, at the summits we can achieve by staying true to what lies waiting, dormant, within the limitless spirits of every human being.
"This is a horse story for grown-ups. The Black Stallion for adults."
"Written by a horse person for horse people"
"Enchanting and consuming."
Six horses and Saratoga. It's a young trainer's dream come true, and it's happening for Alex at last: Alexander is entrusting the farm's racing string to her while he heads Down Under to help run his sick brother's farm.
But Saratoga isn't interested in Alex without Alexander. Unproven and decidedly female in a man's world, Alex finds herself the target of old-school racetrackers certain she married her way into training good horses. At the same time, her naïve assistant, Kerri, is far too interested in the less-than-scrupulous trainer who shares their barn.
But running a racing stable doesn't leave much time for petty fights and stable rivalries. Horses need to be worked, races need to be run. And Alex has her eye on something besides the winner's circle: a funny-faced filly, a chestnut nobody with a spotty blaze and a decided lack of brakes. Saratoga thinks the filly has a screw loose. But Alex knows better.
From training track gossip to tack-room confidentials, OTHER PEOPLE'S HORSES continues the story of Alex and Alexander -- two Thoroughbred trainers trying to do that right thing -- that began in THE HEAD AND NOT THE HEART.
*In keeping with its racetrack theme, this book contains strong language.
