Few of God's creatures are as noble and soul-stirring as the horse. Even those of us who don't have horses of our own love to read inspiring stories of these beautiful, regal beasts. With contributions from well-known authors such as Lauraine Snelling, Susy Flory, Rebecca E. Ondov, Wanda Dyson, and Sarah Parshall Perry, these true stories of horses and the people who love them are sometimes touching, sometimes humorous, and sometimes miraculous. As she did in her dog and cat story collections, Callie Grant Smith has compiled another perfect read for animal lovers--time with horses as the subject.

Horses are often more than a hobby. For many people, especially girls, they are a passion. The horses at Friendly Horse Acres walk, trot, and canter across the pages of The Hoofbeats of My Heart. Their stories, and the stories of their family, will bring smiles and perhaps a few tears. Hopefully they will temporarily quench the need for one more horse story. Many of the stories about the horses at Friendly Horse Acres have been published as individual articles. This is the first time they appear as a unit. All profits for The Hoofbeats of My Heart go to Friendly Horse Acres, a nonprofit organization that puts children, especially at risk children, together with "friendly" horses.

My Horse, My Heart: The Morgan Horses of the University of Connecticut is the story of the UConn-bred Morgan horse. Sturdy, strong and proud-each foal born in the UConn barns can be traced back to the magnificent Morgan horses bred for the cavalry at the United States Government Horse Farm in Vermont. It is also the story of the many students, owners, trainers and breeders who loved them. The Morgans of UConn are so much more than the herd stallions and the broodmares. They are the foals that grow up to be Champions, teachers, partners and best friends. They are the horses that can elicit the joy of younger days, trotting in a dusty show ring under a summer sun, and walking out with a ribbon clipped to the bridle. There are trunkfuls of those ribbons, somewhere, each one holding a proud memory of that special horse: the UConn-bred Morgan. "The blood of the brave steeds that carried men into battle still courses through the veins of the University of Connecticut Morgan horse. The UConn Morgan is truly America's horse, and their bravery, beauty and stamina is legendary. "And, if you look into the eyes of a UConn Morgan, you will see a faraway flame, the generations of the lives they touched." Excerpt from My Horse, My Heart: The Morgan Horses of the University of Connecticut by Helen Scanlon

Seed of My Heart began as a short story with the sole purpose to maintain communication with my eldest granddaughter, Madeline. I would write a few paragraphs every week, and, as I did, something happened. What began as a carefree story about the summer adventures of an old man and his grandniece sprouted into a deeper revelation about the richness of a life lived in ordinary obscurity. The life of the main character, a single man of many years, and his borrowed, beloved family became an opportunity to reveal the power working through us when God’s planted seeds become watered by the Holy Spirit. It is a story that I hope sheds light on the human misadventure, with all its folly and heartbreak, but with a spirit that is renewed in the dark of night by a whisper in the heart. The story provides an example of the rich blessings produced by a walk with the Lord—just a ministry of one seemingly missing in the dust of days gone by, a single old man treading faithfully into the inevitable sunset. In the end, the old, weathered soul, winnowed through years of harsh wind and hard living, now finds himself on a majestic mountain for a final time. He is there with a small band of sheep, three dogs, a horse, and an aging eagle. The adventure of his final summer and of his last days on the mountain finds completion in a place of amazing grace.

The “fascinating” #1 New York Times bestseller that awakened the world to the destruction of American Indians in the nineteenth-century West (The Wall Street Journal). First published in 1970, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee generated shockwaves with its frank and heartbreaking depiction of the systematic annihilation of American Indian tribes across the western frontier. In this nonfiction account, Dee Brown focuses on the betrayals, battles, and massacres suffered by American Indians between 1860 and 1890. He tells of the many tribes and their renowned chiefs—from Geronimo to Red Cloud, Sitting Bull to Crazy Horse—who struggled to combat the destruction of their people and culture. Forcefully written and meticulously researched, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee inspired a generation to take a second look at how the West was won. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dee Brown including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Forty six years hadn’t wiped away the memories of 1955 and 1956. I still was fearful someone from the past would harm me. Time stood still and I pictured the people exactly as they were then. As I looked around things were even more dismal now than they were fifty years ago. As we drove past the High School my mind drifted back to the morning I was summoned to the Principal’s office and I could hear his voice and feel the viciousness that spewed from his mouth “We don’t want your kind here, and if your Momma and your Daddy will agree we’ll be glad to send you to reform school at Chilacothe”.”And I can guarantee you we’ll lynch that nigger if he shows up at the Homecoming next week!” I was scared to death. I had to warn Andy. That night I found out his parents had whisked him out of town. What was I going to do? The bus ride to Denver seemed endless. This would be the farthest I had ever been from home and I had NEVER been this far by myself. My life as I had known it was over. Why had my parents kept the real ugly truth hidden from me? Could I, a fifteen year old girl, survive the hatred in America that I was just learning about. Thank God I would be safe with Andy. We could conquer racism with love, couldn’t we? Although the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize Interracial Marriages in Amercia with the Loving v. Virginia case was establisted in 1967, Andy and I were the first Black/White Interracial Couple to legally be married in Colorado ten years earlier in 1957.

In this emotional and powerfully sensual tale of love and redemption, a tender vicar’s daughter and a tortured war hero discover that sin may be their only salvation. When Mary Smith’s corrupt, debt-ridden brother drags her to a seedy pub to sell her virtue to the highest bidder, Alasdair Thornham leaps to the rescue. Of course the marquess is far from perfect husband material. Although he is exceedingly handsome, with a perfect, strong body, chiseled jaw, and piercing green eyes, Alasdair is also too fond of opium, preferring delirium to reality. Still, he has come to Mary’s aid, and now she intends to return the favor. She will show him that he is not evil, just troubled. Mary was a damsel in need of a hero, but Alasdair’s plan is shortsighted. He never foresaw her desire to save him from himself. Alasdair is quite at home in his private torment, until this angel proves that a heart still beats in his broken soul. The devil may have kept her from hell, but will Mary’s good intentions lead them back to the brink—or to heaven in each other’s arms? Praise for Hero of My Heart “It’s a fabulous book.”—New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries “I didn’t want to stop reading!”—Amanda McCabe (aka Laurel McKee) “Megan Frampton’s talent just sizzles off the page.”—Award-winning author Andrea Pickens (aka Cara Elliott) “Mary and Alasdair’s budding love affair and their internal conflicts with their sense of love versus duty make this romance a page-turner; recommended for most romance collections.”—Library Journal “A wonderful, sweet, hot romance . . . Hero of My Heart was a different historical romance that I absolutely adored.”—Imagine a World “Recommended for fans of unique story lines with personal struggles and a happily-ever-after that will make you smile.”—Rogues Under the Covers “If you are looking for a quick read with a seriously flawed hero and a heroine in need of rescuing, I would suggest Hero of My Heart.”—What I’m Reading “This is a suspenseful and romantic adventure of two lost souls who are destined to torture and love each other no matter what the outcome. I find Ms. Frampton’s style very clean and refreshing, and her characters are playful as well serious.”—The Eclectic Review Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Along Came Trouble, The Notorious Lady Anne, and Unforgettable.
