Spoken Arts: Cowboy Buck Brannaman

By Mary Van Vorst

Buffalo, NY – Buck Brannaman was the inspiration for the novel-turned-movie "The Horse Whisperer." To see him work a horse, you'd swear it was magic. If he were to turn to you and say, "let me show you how I did that trick," you wouldn't be surprised. Now, he's written a book about his real life, titled "The Faraway Horses."

He talked with WBFO's Mary Van Vorst when he was in Buffalo recently for a horse clinic.
