This is a movie not a book. I still got it because of Richard Burton. Again anything with him in it I adore. The movie is very unique story. I will not give it away but it is Richard playing a phycrist to a young man of 18 or so who blinds some horses. It is kinda weird story. It is not about showing hurting the horses but why the boy did it. It is interesting.
Richard Burton fan all the way.
