Nicholas Evans: Horse Whisperer author dies aged 72

By the 1980s, Evans was working at London Weekend Television, producing films on Sir Laurence Olivier, Francis Bacon and David Hockney for The South Bank Show.

After developing his skills as a screenwriter with projects starring Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Sir Ian Holm and more, he began work on his debut novel, The Horse Whisperer, which was published in 1995.

The Horse Whisperer follows a complex and talented trainer who is hired to help an injured teenager and her horse back to health after a severe injury.

In a statement, United Agents said the “much-loved” writer had died following a heart attack on Tuesday. “He lived a full and happy life, in his home on the banks of the River Dart in Devon,” it added.

Evans’ 1995 novel The Horse Whisperer sold 15m copies worldwide, becoming the number one bestseller in 20 countries. It has been translated into 40 languages and was made into a film, starring, produced by and directed by Robert Redford.

The novelist, who was also an award-winning documentary-maker, went on to write four more bestselling novels: The Loop, The Smoke Jumper, The Divide and The Brave.

Nicholas Evans obituary

When Nicholas Evans finished writing The Horse Whisperer, he could scarcely have imagined it would become one of the most successful novels in the history of publishing.

The good-looking Evans basked in all the attention

'There would be women queuing up to get signed copies of the book, looking at me as though I could tell them the meaning of life.

'I know they saw me as Tom Booker [the charismatic horse whisperer played by Robert Redford in the film], but it wasn't true at all.'

Nicholas Evans, author of The Horse Whisperer, dies aged 72

Evans was born and grew up in Worcestershire and studied law at Oxford University before working as a journalist on the Evening Chronicle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

He then moved into television, producing films about US politics and the Middle East for a weekly current affairs programme called “Weekend World’’. In 1982 he started to produce arts documentaries about famous writers, painters and film-makers such as David Hockney and Patricia Highsmith, several of which won international awards.

For the next 10 years, Evans wrote and produced a number of films for television and the cinema. In 1993 he met a blacksmith in the south-west of England who told him about horse whisperers – people who have the gift of healing traumatised horses.
