    Story

    On January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany, thanks largely to the efforts of the Hitler Youth, whose organized propaganda marches throughout Germany helped the Nazi Party grow in strength. By 1939, it is estimated that more than seven million boys and girls belonged to the Hitler Youth.

    Story

    A finely rendered story about a horse abused in the performance arena who, by no fault of his own, falls into even more dire straits--and is then rescued and rehabilitated by two good women who see horses as something more than means to an end... I am a horse owner and thus see the attitude far too many people have toward horses (Miskeen's tale, amazingly, takes place in 1993), and I am sad to say that this type of tale is not uncommon. Horses are trained without care, ridden and put up without praise, used until they no longer earn blue ribbons and trophies, and then are sold off, gotten rid of, many times ending up in slaughter as thanks for their many years of service. Like the old tale Black Beauty, the story of Miskeen reminds us once again that horses are living, feeling, sentient beings with more to give to us than we know--if only we will give first to them.

    Miskeen was born in obscurity on a Russian farm, sold to a traveling circus, and earned a reputation performing in small towns in the 1980s. He was schooled first as a liberty (rider-less) horse and then as a “dancing” (dressage) performer. Dancing was what he did best, and he was often observed trotting on the spot whenever he heard music. He matured into a magnificent, highly trained and valuable animal. But then tragedy struck. Confined in his stall after an exhausting day of performances in unbearable heat, Miskeen was spotted by a boy.

    Sometimes our children have medical issues that are difficult for them to understand. Wouldn't it be great to be able to explain complex medical problems to children in a way that would allow them to: Learn and understand more about their condition? Learn the causes and available treatment for their condition? Learn how to become independent and responsible for taking better care of their bodies? Learn how to treat or help a friend or sibling with a health condition?
