Melanie Sue Bowles Headlines The Next "Conversations With Animal Authors" Teleconference
The Animal Communication Book Club's next "Conversations With Animal Authors" Teleconference, featuring Melanie Sue Bowles, author of "The Horses of Proud Spirit" and "Hoof Prints" will be held on Thursday, March 26th, 2009 at 8:00pm (EDT).
Ms. Bowles, along with her husband, Jim, is the founder of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary http://www.horsesofproudspirit.org/
In The Horses of Proud Spirit and its recent sequel, Hoof Prints, Melanie Sue Bowles recounts, with heartfelt emotion, candor, and sometimes, anguish, the stories of dozens of the abused, neglected, discarded, and needy horses who have been fortunate enough to find a permanent home, and loving care, within the boundaries of her Sanctuary. She knew nothing at all about horses when she purchased her first one, the broken down and unloved mare, Cody, who turned out to be the catalyst for Melanie's personal journey of self-discovery, one in which she would learn from the horses themselves what they needed to heal their wounded hearts.
"I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to talk with Melanie Sue Bowles about her passionate commitment to horses in need, and to introduce new readers to her compelling accounts of their plight," said Maureen Harmonay. "I was captivated, but also very disturbed, by the stories of the horses who have been welcomed into Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary. In some cases, these horses have survived unspeakable cruelty, and their ability to live out their days with dignity and kindness and without fear is testimony to the generosity and dedication of Ms. Bowles and her husband."
All royalties from the sales of "The Horses of Proud Spirit" and "Hoof Prints" are earmarked for the support of the Bowles' nonprofit Sanctuary.
