Despite the fanfare and subsequent letdown of Nicholas Evans's story of a Montana horse healer, the audiobook will have wide appeal. Peter Coyote is a fine storyteller and immediately involves listeners with the story of a girl and her horse injured in a horrifying accident. Coyote uses easy, low-key Western accents for Tom Booker, the healer, and other characters when the story moves to Booker's Montana ranch. Listeners won't want to turn the story off until Evans dissapoints with a conclusion that's all too predictable. Coyote even seems to lose some of his involvement.
