he Long Ride is a vivid, sweeping and passionate story about a modern day adventure that puts you firmly in the saddle, on the back of a beautiful Arabian horse, and sets you upon a record-setting ride through small towns and big cities across America.

It is the story of a team with a very specific purpose–a team of people and their Arabian horses on a coast-to-coast journey to set a record and draw attention to the destruction of the world’s rainforests. In this second book about his horseback ride, Spataro demonstrates the wit, eloquence and insight that inspired a legion of people to become involved in the ride and interested in the pressing rainforest issue.

With hundreds of photos from Spataro’s collection and historic sources, The Long Ride is a beautiful chronology of a place in time when three horses and a team of people were doing the “right thing” against very long odds; their perseverance is even more inspiring today, twenty years later.
