“…I could tell from the first pages that I was in good hands with the telling of this adventure. If you like reading Steinbeck (think Travels With Charlie, but a little rowdier) you'll need to read this thing.”
" ‘Man & Horse’ is all I'd hoped it would be. The adventure would be compelling told by anyone but John has a way with words. His language is simple, direct and I couldn't put the book down. I finished it in two sittings over a 24 hour period.”
“…more than anything, like all the other girls then and now, I just fell in love with the horse. I love how much John loved him and cared for him.”
“I don't usually read autobiographical tales, much more into Scifi and fantasy, but John's story is one that captured me from the first page. A glimpse into times past, an America no longer accessible, and a journey for no real reason other than a personal drive.”
“One of the best books I've read in a long time, and I read a LOT… If you are interested in adventure travels you will love it, but you will love it even more for it's human story!”
“John Egenes has told the story of this epic voyage of self-discovery in straightforward yet compelling fashion. Think Keroac meets Robert M. Persig. Great Yarn full of practical and philosophical tidbits. Highly recommend.”
“Can you rate this 10 stars out of 5?”
“…with anecdotes that sometimes put you in mind of listening to a cowboy by the campfire, Egenes flicks easily between times in the past. Populated by myriad characters and other living creatures (not always friendly) in the changing landscape, his account is interspersed with personal philosophy and hung on the backbone of his relationship with the wonderful Gizmo.”
“…A great adventure story with snakes, scorpions, human predators, an extraordinary friendship between the author and a 4-year-old Quarter Horse gelding and America.”
“A wonderful, touching story that has had me, on my Kindle, and my husband, on our old PC, reading every chance we could get. Thank you and Gizmo for a really great ride.”
