"Joe Camp is a master storyteller." - The New York Times

 The anxiously anticipated sequel to the National Best Seller The Soul of a Horse - Life Lessons from the Herd.

"In Born Wild Joe Camp continues to demonstrate, in simple, unpretentious eloquence, how much we two-legged creatures can learn from horses. One of the rewards for reading the book is that it can be taken literally as the tale of a newborn horse fancier learning his craft, or as the road map for humanity on how to develop leadership in any herd. With humor, affection and discernment, Camp repeatedly underscores that true relationships are built on trust with any creatures."- Jack L. Kennedy, The Joplin Independent 


Born
Wild is a study in trust. A story about molding your life to ask what’s
in it for the other person, the dog, the cat, or in this case, the
horse. instead of asking what’s in it for yourself. It’s a story about
how the soul prospers from sharing, caring, relating, and fulfilling…
because nothing can make you feel better than doing something good for
another being. And it’s about the fact that there is nothing more
important in life than love. This is the synthesis of this book and why
it came into being. 

"Joe Camp's new book "Born Wild" is making me late everywhere...I
can't put it down...Kudos Joe!” - Cate Crismani, Editor - True Cowboy 



Born Wild – The Soul of a Horse is another voyage into uncharted
territory from the couple who had no horses and no clue just a few short
years ago. A journey of discovery with wild horses going domestic and
domestic horses going wild. And a federal agency going mad. Told as only
Joe Camp can tell it. For everyone who has ever loved a horse or loved
the idea of loving a horse. The author of the highly acclaimed National
Best Seller The Soul of a Horse – Life Lessons from the Herd strikes
again with an uplifting, inspirational love story of trust, tears and
joy that will once again be changing lives for the better all across the
planet.

About the author

Joe Camp showed us the heart and soul of a dog when he created the canine superstar Benji. And he lured us into the soul of a horse in his engaging, emotional, and often humorous best seller The Soul of a Horse: Life Lessons from the Herd, now in its 11th printing, a book that set traditional thinking about horses on its ear while changing the lives of horses and people all across the planet. Camp and his photographer-attorney-teacher wife now deftly lure us back into the heart and soul of a horse in his new and powerful Born Wild – The Soul of a Horse.

 

Camp has written, produced and directed seven theatrical motion pictures (including all of the Benji movies) cumulatively grossing well over the equivalent of $600 million in today's dollars, making him one of the most successful independent filmmakers of all time. In addition to his nine books about horses, and his recent God Only Knows, Joe has also written three novels from his own screenplays, and several children's books, and a Benji training book. He is also a passionate speaker.

 

Joe believes that anything is possible if you work hard enough and have faith in yourself and God. Even with all the accomplishments and media exposure, he is still in awe of his own success. "Inside, I'm still a kid sitting in a dark theater in Little Rock, Arkansas, watching Disney's 'Song of the South' or reading books like the Black Stallion with happy tears rolling down my cheeks," he says. "To be able to bring that that kind of happiness to others is very special."

A surprise birthday gift plunged Joe Camp and his wife, Kathleen, into the world of horses as complete neophytes without a clue as to what horses needed or wanted. The Camps went searching for logic and sense in the rule books of traditional horse care and what they found was not what they had expected. Written for everyone who has ever loved a horse or even loved the idea of having a horse in their lives, this memoir leads us on a riveting voyage of discovery as Joe and Kathleen navigate uncharted, often politically incorrect territory on their way to achieving a true relationship with their horses.

As the creator of the beloved Benji series, Joe has spent most of his life luring us into the heart and soul of a famous dog, but now in this engaging, emotional, and often humorous story, he deftly lures us into the heart and soul of a horse. In doing so, he exposes astonishing truths and unlocks the mystery of a majestic creature who has survived on Earth, without assistance, for fifty-five million years. In a single emotionally charged moment, Camp communes with his first horse, Cash, in a way that changes him and his relationship with horses forever. In his own words, as he stood alone with his back to this horse: The collar of my jacket was tickling the hairs on the back of my neck. And my heart was pounding. Then a puff of warm, moist air brushed my ear. My heart skipped a beat. He was really close. Then I felt his nose on my shoulder . . . I couldn’t believe it. Tears came out of nowhere and streamed down my cheeks. I had spoken to him in his own language, and he had listened . . . and he had chosen to be with me. He had said, I trust you.

Ingeniously alternating between the stories of two people thrust into an unfamiliar, enigmatic realm and a fabled herd of wild horses brought to the New World centuries ago, Joe Camp’s valuable and inspiring book teaches us that the lessons he was learning apply not only to his horses but to life and to people as well–to all of us.
