    More Special Stories from a Special Person

    Melanie and Jim Bowles are true horse people. They know that hours spent in the saddle do not give a rider a knowledge of what causes horses to sometimes behave in ways that we don¿t understand. The hours that Melanie and Jim have spent alongside their horses, rather than on their backs, have taught them far more than many of us could ever hope to learn.<BR/><BR/>So it is with great compassion and her ever-present sense of humor, that in Hoof Prints, Melanie tells us not only the horses¿ stories, but gives us a better look at who she is as a person. We are ¿along for the ride¿ when Melanie and Jim make their big move from Florida to Arkansas, and we, too, feel Melanie¿s bittersweet emotions as she and Jim leave their friends, and Cody, Melanie¿s first horse.<BR/><BR/>In The Horses of Proud Spirit, Melanie¿s emphasis was on the sometimes terrible things humans do to horses. In Hoof Prints, Melanie continues telling us some more appalling stories but this time around she introduces us to humans doing the right thing for horses, even if they started out, often inadvertently, doing the wrong things.<BR/><BR/>Melanie¿s stories demonstrate, and remind us, of how we tend to get in the way of allowing horses to be¿well, horses. If you have had the opportunity to read The Horses of Proud Spirit, you will really enjoy meeting more of the equine residents of Proud Spirit. And, of course, you¿ll need to have a case of tissues nearby.<BR/><BR/>Laurie Loveman, Author<BR/>MEMORIES: Firehouse Family Series Book One<BR/>THE QUARRY: Firehouse Family Series Book Two<BR/>THE FARM FIRES: Firehouse Family Series Book Three

    As awesome as the first one!

    An outstanding book! I have met Melanie in person and she is so wonderful. Her whole heart is in helping horses love and trust again. She does not profit from the horses. All of the profit she receives from her books help pay for the horses' needs. A must read for anyone.
