Out Of The Wild, A Novel By Mark Rashid, NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JOHN DIEHL, JEAN LOUISA KELLY AND BEN ASHBROOK / DIRECTED BY PAUL KRIZAN. One dark, vacant, Nevada night cattle rancher Henry McBride closes his eyes, only to open them and find his life suddenly in shambles, with everything that means anything lost to him forever. Overwhelmed by grief and haunted by guilt, Henry drives away from his past as far and as fast as he can. Jobs, towns, and whiskey come and go. He always tells himself he'll stay just long enough to earn the money he needs to buy his next drink, somewhere else on down the road. But guest ranch owner, Jessie King, extends an open and forgiving hand to the cowboy, and the arrival of a young mustang stallion also wounded and alone ignites a flicker of recognition in Henry. Like him broken. With Jessie's powerful ability to connect with horses, and her gentle attempts to connect with Henry, time slows enough on the ranch to heal, just a little. But Jessie, too, has an imperfect past, and when her former ranch manager returns with murder in mind, the fragile world she, Henry, and the stallion are building together threatens to come crashing down. ''A story of redemption that gives us a glimpse into ways of looking at horses, and perhaps even ourselves, with new eyes.''-THE HUFFINGTON POST. Paperback. 376 pages.
