About the Book

Greg Reid shares lessons learned as a cowboy/stockman, radio announcer, and writer in Queensland, Australia, in this memoir.

On a cattle ranch growing up, he came to understand that riding horses is much like negotiating life. Once a horse bucked him off in a certain way, he learned that lesson. It’s like that in life, too: We have the opportunity to learn from our mistakes.

A constant theme is his love for Christ, who he did not give himself to fully until 1989, when he had an out-of-body experience at Kurramine Beach, traveling back to the night when Judas betrayed Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane.

He confesses to being both a healer and a sinner—something that took him nearly a lifetime to figure out but that has helped him discover Christ, change his life, and help others.

Join the author as he acknowledges his frailties, explores other dimensions, and reveals how God and spirituality interact with the culture of indigenous Australia in The White Horse and the Wandjina.
