Think harmony with Horses by Ray Hunt, The Faraway horses by Buck Brannaman, True Horsemanship through Feel by Bill Dorrance and Leslie Desmond, and True Unity by Tom Dorrance. Be prepared to use your brain because these were written by horseman not writers and the concepts they talk about are quite complex. If you stick with it and study it untill you understand it your horsemanship will positively change.

Mark Rashid has several books that are pretty good reads. Ive read A Good Horse is Never a Bad Color and I realy enjoyed it.

I've been to Rozet. I think you mean overpriced store right?

ROFL, well... we don't even have a store. Just an elementary school, cafe/bar, post office and a few trailers down an...adult bar... In that order.
Id be happy with a store!
We have to go to Gillette and everything is way overmarked.

Chosen by a Horse. I forgot who the author was, but its a true story and had me in tears. Its about how a broken horse healed a broken heart. Its a great read.
