Fade to white: the NY Times gives the Ghost Horse an epic epilogue
“They rambled and ran, calling Caballo…”
The New York Times re-creates the final days and rollercoaster last years of Micah True, in both print and audio forms. Among the story’s other virtues, it’s the best-reported and most emotionally-moving account of the search — not a surprise, since it comes from narrative master Barry Bearak. This was a difficult story to get right, particularly since Caballo was such a storm cloud of conflicting emotions, and Bearak handles it with extraordinary skill.
