Angel Horses Press Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Huntington Beach Author, Sam Younghans, Rides High on Hope and Horses
Minneapolis, Minnesota, October 28, 2006 Ė In a country where horseracing rules and battles continue over passing national legislation that would ban horse slaughter, a new book claims that horses can transform despair into hope for the humans who love them. Although only four percent of American households have a horse, the affection that people feel for these historically significant animals fuels an industry that generates billions of dollars. In celebration of horses who serve as healers, protectors, and companions of humans, best-selling authors Allen and Linda Anderson have added to their successful series of books about the depth of human-animal relationships. Their new anthology, Angel Horses: Divine Messengers of Hope (New World Library, October 2006, ISBN: 10: 1-57731-518-9, trade paperback, 230 pages, $13.95, www.angelanimals.net) is available in bookstores.
On Wednesday, December 6, 7:00 p.m., Huntington Beach contributing author Sam Younghans will sign Angel Horses at Barnes & Noble, 245 North Glendale Ave., Glendale, CA 91206. Info: 818-246-4677. Samís story, "Playing Games with My Pal, Brady," charts the remarkable antics of a clever and creative horse who brought joy and laughter to an empty-nesterís home. Sam is a childrenís book author and produced playwright whose stories can be viewed at www.parsec-santa.com.
Allen Anderson says, "We wrote Angel Horses because over the years since we started our Angel Animals Network, so many people had sent us stories about the amazing spiritual connection they feel with horses. Horse people will be gratified to find that our contributing authors have written about profoundly inspiring experiences. Those who know very little about the creativity, compassion, and awareness of horses will be amazed by Angel Horsesís stories."
Angel Horses includes stories about:
Emily, an autistic child befriended by an abandoned rescue horse
Ladigan, a horse who sheds tears of comfort with a grieving woman
Sparky, formerly a magicianís horse, whose tricks bring comic relief to children
Zeke and Lois, with a deeper and longer-lasting bond than most human relationships
Walter, an ailing mule who leads a husband and wife to alternative healing
An inspiring story by Dr. Sherril Green, DVM, winner of the 2005 Angel Horses contest
Shaggy, an abused Shetland pony who brings joy and compassion to preschoolers
A sorrel mare who saves the life of a teenage girl three times
A womanís transcendent experience while doing dressage exercises with her horse.
"If you love horses and appreciate the countless gifts they bring to our lives, you will want to keep this exceptional collection of heartwarming stories close to your bedside for inspirational reading. Angel Horses is a rare gift to the world of equines."óLinda Tellington-Jones, founder of the Tellington TTouch Method
