Publisher Comments:

What does an unlikely pack of stray and homeless dogs have in common with a certain herd of downtrodden horses? They were all lucky enough to wind up in the loving arms of Melanie Sue Bowles and her husband, Jim founders of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary. Author Melanie Sue Bowles introduced readers to this extraordinary place of healing in her debut book, The Horses of Proud Spirit, and in the inspiring sequel, Hoof Prints: More Stories from Proud Spirit. Now Melanie graces readers once again with unforgettable true stories, this time about the numerous dogs who have found their way to the Bowles’s gate and into their hearts. The Dogs of Proud Spirit is a testament to the undeniable truth that animals enrich our lives. They give us—and teach us to give—boundless joy and unconditional love.

 

Synopsis:

"The Horses of Proud Spirit is an homage to the spirit of these alluring creatures and a moving memoir of lessons learned in compassion, strength, and loss.

About the Author

Melanie Sue Bowles, along with her husband, Jim, is the founder of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary, now located in Mena, Arkansas, one of the most successful and longest-existing facilities for horses in the United States. Proud Spirit has intervened on behalf of nearly 300 abused, neglected, and unwanted equines, and has also rescued several dozen dogs and cats, many of whom have become members of the family. Melanie has these words etched on her heart: “The Purpose of life is to live a life of purpose.” Her website is www.horsesofproudspirit.org.

I was so moved by the stories of these proud horses that I had to connect with the author, which I did. I wrote to Melanie Bowles asking for an invitation to visit the Poud Spirit Sanctuary. Unfortunately, they were moving the following week to Arkansas. Well, then I would have to go to Arkansas! Which I did with my husband. The Sanctuary is just that. A calm serene sanctuary of 320 acres. It is beautiful as are the horses and Jim and Melanie. This is a book of great feelings with emotional magnetism that makes the spirit soar. This book is a 'must read' book and should be read by every book club.
