This is the story of Cole - a little white horse - and Sally, the girl who loved him. The story starts with how they met, how they grew to love each other, and then how they managed to get through a rather scary adventure together. The story comes to an end - as all stories do - but Sally and Cole were both better for having met. Although this is only a story, it is inspired by a real little girl and a real little horse. That girl, who is not little anymore, is Alexa Kullberg. And the little white horse really is Cole.

A woman’s breakup with her fiancé forces her home to her parents only to face more obstacles as she reflects on her relationships with humans—and horses. Wild Ride Home is a brilliant memoir, looping themes of finding love and losing love, of going away and coming home, of the wretched course of Alzheimer's, of cancer, of lost pregnancies, of fly fishing and horsemanship, of second chances, and, ultimately, of the triumph of love and family—all told within the framework of the training of a little white horse named Buddy. Wild Ride Home invites the reader into the close Hemp family, which believes beauty and humor outshine the most devastating circumstances. Such optimism is challenged when the author suffers a series of blows: a dangerous fiancé, her mother’s dementia, unexpected death and illness. Buddy, a feisty, unforgettable little Arabian horse with his own history to overcome, offers her a chance to look back on her own life and learn to trust again, not only others, but more importantly, herself. Hemp skillfully guides us through a memoir that is, despite devastating loss, above all, an ode to joy. “Poet Hemp’s debut memoir fluently combines multiple story lines into a coherent whole... A well-told story of embracing life’s struggles that is perfect for horse lovers or those who have personal experience with cancer or Alzheimer’s.” —Library Journal “This memoir seems written directly from Hemp’s soul, as she beautifully shares her moving story of learning to love and trust again after loss.” —Booklist “A book of kindness, compassion, love and resilience. . . . One of the best rides you’ll ever take!” —Susan Richards, author of the national bestseller, Chosen by a Horse “A gorgeous, compassionate exploration of life, loss, and love. Hemp dives deep, with clear eyes and a strong heart, into the events in our lives that could make us fall, and shows us how to stand up, be still, and draw the power into ourselves.” —New York Times-bestseller Erica Bauermeister, author of The Scent Keeper

Readers captivated by this book will be happy that Bill Ferris found Ray Lum and that he thought to turn on a tape recorder. Lum (1891–1977) was a mule skinner, a livestock trader, an auctioneer, and an American original. This delightful book, first published in 1992 as You Live and Learn. Then You Die and Forget It All, preserves Lum’s colorful folk dialect and captures the essence of this one-of-a-kind figure who seems to have stepped full-blooded from the pages of Mark Twain. This riveting tale-spinner was tall, heavy-set, and full of body rhythm as he talked. In his special world, he was famous for trading, for tale-telling, and for common-sense lessons that had made him a savvy bargainer and a shrewd businessman. His home and his auction barn were in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where mules were his main interest, but in trading he fanned out over twenty states and even into Mexico. A west Texas newspaper reported his fame this way, “He is known all over cow country for his honest, fair dealing and gentlemanly attitude. . . .A letter addressed to him anywhere in Texas probably would be delivered.” Over several years, Ferris recorded Lum’s many long conversations that detail livestock auctioneering, cheery memories of rustic Deep South culture, and a philosophy of life that is grounded in good horse sense. Even among the most spellbinding talkers, Lum is a standout both for what he has to say and for the way he says it. Ferris’s lucky, protracted encounters with him turn out to be the best of good fortune for everybody.
