This true story of Alex is the first time recovery of a horse from brain encephalitis has ever been documented. Bred to be a championship show horse, Alex is judged a failure at the young age of two and is instead banished to the land of cowboys at a rural Arizona desert barn. He soon contracts the most severe form of the West Nile virus which causes brain encephalitis. He is not expected to recover, but somehow manages to survive. It is then that this true story begins as his recovery is documented over an 18 month period. The compelling book chronicles the triumphs, frustrations, laughter and heartwarming moments as Alex and his rescuer fight the odds to bring him back to the world of a normal riding horse.
