Author Amber Massey grew up loving horses but never owning one. That finally changed the day she met Marquise. This horse was her gift from God. During those long trail rides, as horse and rider learned to work with each other, Amber felt God draw her close. Along the way, He revealed His truths to her and established a solid, lifelong relationship. Her stories of that journey give light to the tender relationship between a horse and rider and will stir your heart to seek God’s presence—even in the tack room. As you share this trail with Amber, you will discover that a life of faith begins with the love of God—and sometimes God uses horses to show us the way.

In his eighty-plus years, Max Evans has known, owned, ridden, and been thrown by quite a number of horses. InFor the Love of a Horse,Evans shares his favorite horse stories for all to enjoy. As Max explains, "I wanted a wide range of adventures from another time, with different horses, of different breeds, and a sense of history of those special days." Max begins with his first horse, Cricket, which he received when he was four years old. At the age of ten, he helped with a horse-drive from far southeast New Mexico, through west Texas, and on to the final destination in Guymon, Oklahoma. Later, PDQ was a horse that seemed very gentle and laid-back, until someone rode him. And then there was Molly, who liked to fly through and around obstacles on coyote hunts. This book is for all those who enjoy reading horse stories as much as Max loves telling them. Saddle up! "The recognition is long overdue. [Max Evans is]sui generis.He understands the present West better than anyone else, what it's like to be there now living in two worlds of the pickup truck and the bronco."--Charles Champlin, former Denver bureau chief ofTimeand retired arts editor ofThe Los Angeles Times,quoted inThe New York Times

From teaching us to tie our shoes to parallel park, from outfitting us for our first dance or our first day in the dorm room, our moms have been our chief counselors, cheerleaders, critics, chauffeurs, and chefs. For the Love of Mom pays homage to the special women who rocked us, raised us, championed us, challenged us, and—at times—exasperated us. Whether a woman becomes a mom by giving birth, or through the blessings of adoption or step-parenting, she will be moved, inspired, and entertained by these true stories that share both the monumental milestones and everyday moments of motherhood. Some stories are humorous, some heartfelt; others will help moms through the trying times, yet all underscore the devotion and dedication we admire most about mothers. While the experience of motherhood is different for every woman, one thing is universal: it's almost impossible to fathom the myriad of joys and triumphs encountered on the journey. For the Love of Mom celebrates moms and the uniquely important roles they play in our lives.

Those nonhuman beings called "animals" pose philosophical and ethical questions that go to the root not just of what we think but of who we are. Their presence asks: what happens when "the other" can no longer safely be assumed to be human? This collection offers a set of incitements and coordinates for exploring how these issues have been represented in contemporary culture and theory, from Jurassic Park and the "horse whisperer" Monty Roberts, to the work of artists such as Joseph Beuys and William Wegman; from foundational texts on the animal in the works of Heidegger and Freud, to the postmodern rethinking of ethics and animals in figures such as Singer, Deleuze, Lyotard, and Levinas; from the New York Times investigation of a North Carolina slaughterhouse, to the first appearance in any language of Jacques Derrida's recent detailed critique of Lacan's rendering of the human/animal divide.

I read somewhere that while we cannot direct the wind we can adjust our sails, simple yet profound. It was a Thursday when I filed for divorce. I know because most memorable things seem to happen to me on Thursdays. I could not change the past, but I could do something about the future. It was definitely time for some adjusting. Had I known what lie ahead, I may have given it more thought. Looking back on the last three years of singlehood I am amazed at the people, places and events that invaded my life, showering me with pleasure and pain. My name is Mac and this is an account of my journey, my steps as a divorced woman that tested my sanity and sense of humor. It has been filled with unexpected turns and uncharted roads, but isnt that what life is? Ive learned to cherish the steps, knowing that most of us never realize our dreams or ever reach our destinations. Our steps may be thoughtfully planned and well calculated but most often were forced to take side steps, back steps or just go in circles as forces over which we have no control dictate. I know it is the journey and not the end that is significant and eagerly wait for what comes next.
