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.
