1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he would name Snowman on a truck bound for the slaughterhouse The recent Dutch immigrant recognized the spark in the eye of the beaten up nag and bought him for eighty dollars On Harrys modest farm on Long Island he ultimately taught Snowman how to fly Here is the dramatic and inspiring rise to stardom of an unlikely duo One show at a time against extraordinary odds and some of the most expensive thoroughbreds alive the pair climbed to the very top of the sport of show jumping Their story captured the heart of Cold Warera Americaa story of unstoppable hope inconceivable dreams and the chance to have it all They were the longest of all longshotsand their win was the stuff of legend
