Who were the Original Horse Whisperers and what was the source of their power? What is the link between the Devil and the Whisperers? And did Robert Redford get it right? Journey with Russell Lyon through the fascinating story of the Society of Horsemen, the secret group of strange gifted men who traditionally ruled the world of the stables. Discover a culture stranger than fiction, where a stable-boy could be asked to shake hands with the devil through a wall, and the sign of power would float upstream. This is an informative investigation of the rituals, beliefs and skills of the Original Whisperers.
