Editorial Reviews

Julie Langston
Fearless, factual information with environmental application so needed for today's preteens and young teens who are bombarded with commercialism. My children are grown, but when grandchildren are ready, I'll be glad to read this particular 'Facts of Life'. It's comical relief shows up exactly when needed.
Leaves the reader understanding that 'Facts of Life' is a lot more than reproduction, but the awesome responsibility of being 'thinking creatures'.

Meet the Author

I remember ponies calling me over to feed them handfuls of grass from the time I was four. Growing up, ponies and horses dumped me on manure piles then ran to their barns. I’ve tackled their heads to get bits in, only to be scraped off. A pony picked me up once between my shoulder blades in its defiance of being led from the pasture. Its friends the cows chased me. Most of the time I ended up having a great ride getting my teeth jarred loose.
A product of the late sixties, my childhood gave me the freedom to ride a bicycle to school. I tied string to the handlebars as reins and named it Lightening. It was my first horse. I rode every mutt pony, horse no one else would, any neglected nag in the back field and made friends with any girl who had two.
When I was in my late twenties, after some college, including Language Arts, then the USAF, marriage and babies, I managed to conquer my dream and became a horse owner.
One of them died two years ago. Sugarbabe was a Tennessee Walking Horse. She won first place in confirmation in North Carolina. She won my heart the first time I yelled, “Do you want a bath?” And she answered. Sugarbabe blew, tossed her long neck and ran to the barn. Her sister, Class is still with me. She is nineteen. I am forty-eight. Both of us, at heart are only thirteen when we are out on the trail.
