Straight from the Horse's Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love, Loss, and Hope by new author R. T. Fitch is an altogether special book that sows more than a few wild oats of goodness, inspiration, and heart. This thoughtful and endearing collection of thirty distinct and timeless vignettes is rich and wise. Whether it is the rescue of a missing pony after a hurricane near the Gulf of Mexico or the heartfelt whinny of an abused horse in Nigeria, the author composes beautiful and poetic images on life. While this book's significance is universal, animal and horse lovers are especially in for a treat as loss, turmoil, and grief are intertwined with heroic tales of survival and human empathy. With titles such as "I Sit in Wonder," "She Stole My Heart," and "Whispers in the Night," on these pages is love and symmetry. This collection showcases the contemplative places of the heart, which we are able to learn from his four-legged friends, if we take time to listen closely enough.

About the author (2009)

R.T. Fitch is a jack-of-all-trades. In the past, he has worked with whales, dolphins, sea lions, and penguins at Sea Life Park in Hawaii. First introduced to horses by his wife, Terry, his fondness for all things equine has become an obsession. They spent several years in Brazil where they met Terry's current equine companion, Apache. Once back in the US with Apache, their herd of rescued horses grew as they donated their time to support equine rescue efforts in Texas and Louisiana. The highlight of their rescue career came during the equine rescue efforts after hurricanes Katrina and Rita as outlined in Ky Mortensen's book, Horses of the Storm. A past Director, R. T. currently sits on the Advisory Committee for Habitat for Horses. He and Terry live on a small farm outside of Houston Texas where they care for and enjoy their rescued horses, German Shepherds, cat, Koi and resident deer.
