Very good. Case and lining in very good condition, approx 3 hours playing time. 2 cassettes. approx 3 hours listening time. As a young man, Roberts watched horses in the wild and quite literally learned their language, how they communicated with each other and how he, by copying, could communicate with them and thus earn their trust to the point of saddling up and riding them. He tried to tell people but was universally ridiculed. Shy Boy takes us fifty years on to the plains of the high Nevada desert where, under the scrutiny of a BBC documentary team, he builds a relationship with a feral Mustang over the course of three days, demonstrating his amazing technique of 'join-up' by emulating the actions of the matriarch of the herd.
