Download or read book Wild Ride Home Love Loss and a Little White Horse written by Christine Hemp and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2020-02-04 with total page 265 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A woman’s breakup with her fiancé forces her home to her parents only to face more obstacles as she reflects on her relationships with humans—and horses. Wild Ride Home is a brilliant memoir, looping themes of finding love and losing love, of going away and coming home, of the wretched course of Alzheimer's, of cancer, of lost pregnancies, of fly fishing and horsemanship, of second chances, and, ultimately, of the triumph of love and family—all told within the framework of the training of a little white horse named Buddy. Wild Ride Home invites the reader into the close Hemp family, which believes beauty and humor outshine the most devastating circumstances. Such optimism is challenged when the author suffers a series of blows: a dangerous fiancé, her mother’s dementia, unexpected death and illness. Buddy, a feisty, unforgettable little Arabian horse with his own history to overcome, offers her a chance to look back on her own life and learn to trust again, not only others, but more importantly, herself. Hemp skillfully guides us through a memoir that is, despite devastating loss, above all, an ode to joy. “Poet Hemp’s debut memoir fluently combines multiple story lines into a coherent whole... A well-told story of embracing life’s struggles that is perfect for horse lovers or those who have personal experience with cancer or Alzheimer’s.” —Library Journal “This memoir seems written directly from Hemp’s soul, as she beautifully shares her moving story of learning to love and trust again after loss.” —Booklist “A book of kindness, compassion, love and resilience. . . . One of the best rides you’ll ever take!” —Susan Richards, author of the national bestseller, Chosen by a Horse “A gorgeous, compassionate exploration of life, loss, and love. Hemp dives deep, with clear eyes and a strong heart, into the events in our lives that could make us fall, and shows us how to stand up, be still, and draw the power into ourselves.” —New York Times-bestseller Erica Bauermeister, author of The Scent Keeper

Download or read book Mule Trader written by William R. Ferris and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2010-12-01 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Readers captivated by this book will be happy that Bill Ferris found Ray Lum and that he thought to turn on a tape recorder. Lum (1891–1977) was a mule skinner, a livestock trader, an auctioneer, and an American original. This delightful book, first published in 1992 as You Live and Learn. Then You Die and Forget It All, preserves Lum’s colorful folk dialect and captures the essence of this one-of-a-kind figure who seems to have stepped full-blooded from the pages of Mark Twain. This riveting tale-spinner was tall, heavy-set, and full of body rhythm as he talked. In his special world, he was famous for trading, for tale-telling, and for common-sense lessons that had made him a savvy bargainer and a shrewd businessman. His home and his auction barn were in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where mules were his main interest, but in trading he fanned out over twenty states and even into Mexico. A west Texas newspaper reported his fame this way, “He is known all over cow country for his honest, fair dealing and gentlemanly attitude. . . .A letter addressed to him anywhere in Texas probably would be delivered.” Over several years, Ferris recorded Lum’s many long conversations that detail livestock auctioneering, cheery memories of rustic Deep South culture, and a philosophy of life that is grounded in good horse sense. Even among the most spellbinding talkers, Lum is a standout both for what he has to say and for the way he says it. Ferris’s lucky, protracted encounters with him turn out to be the best of good fortune for everybody.
Download or read book Grimm s Complete Fairy Tales written by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2012-11-15 with total page 652 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: No library's complete without the classics! This new edition collects the legendary fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. They are the stories we've known since we were children. Rapunzel. Hansel and Gretel. Cinderella. Sleeping Beauty. But the works originally collected by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s are not necessarily the versions we heard before bedtime. They're darker and often don't end very happily--but they're often far more interesting. This edition of Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favorites--Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many more--in their original versions. Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of “once upon a time”--but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!
Download or read book Delphi Complete Harvard Classics and Shelf of Fiction Illustrated written by Charles W. Eliot and published by Delphi Classics. This book was released on 2018-08-01 with total page 39875 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Regarded by many as the most comprehensive anthology of all time, ‘The Harvard Classics’ was first published in 1909 under the supervision of the Harvard president Charles W. Eliot. An esteemed academic, Eliot had argued that the elements of a liberal education could be gained by spending 15 minutes a day reading from a collection of books that could fit on a five-foot shelf. The publisher P. F. Collier challenged Eliot to make good on this statement and ‘Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf’ was the result. Eight years later Eliot added a further 20 volumes as a sub-collection titled ‘The Harvard Classics Shelf of Fiction’, offering some of the greatest novels and short stories of world literature. The exhaustive anthology of the ‘The Harvard Classics’ comprises every major literary figure, philosopher, religion, folklore and historical subject up to the twentieth century. This comprehensive eBook presents the complete anthology, with Eliot’s original introductions, numerous illustrations, rare texts and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Download or read book Beyond the Snow written by Christine Rawlins and published by WestBow Press. This book was released on 2015-08-28 with total page 548 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “This is a much-needed study of a remarkable life. Elizabeth Goudge was not only a sensitive and acute artist in fiction, but a profoundly insightful commentator on the processes of growing up spiritually and morally. She fully deserves the kind of sympathetic and appreciative exploration provided by this book.” Rowan Williams, 104th Archbishop of Canterbury Elizabeth Goudge once said she had “done no exciting things” - none of the “wonderful things that some people do”. Yet her achievement was wonderful. From the stuff of her own life – even the hard things like depression and nervous breakdown, even the Christian faith that upheld her throughout – she created best-selling books that were read, worldwide, throughout the forty years of her career and are still being read today. J.K. Rowling has said that her favourite childhood book was The Little White Horse - recently filmed as The Secret of Moonacre. Beyond the Snow is an appreciation of Miss Goudge’s life and work that attempts to look beyond her memoires, by linking them to her books and letters and the recollections of family and friends. It examines in particular her Christian faith and its illuminating influence on everything she did, and was. As Alan Walton said, reviewing The Joy of the Snow – “there is nobody like her.”
