    Many horse trainers, even those who espouse the so-called natural horsemanship approach, take the position that horses who fail to obey a human's request are doing so as much out of perversity as ignorance. That's not Mark Rashid's view. In his words, "If we understand that horses can't separate the way they feel from the way they act, then we can start to see that unwanted behavior isn't bad behavior at all. More times than not, it's just the horse expressing the way he feels at that particular moment in time....

    Debut novelist Eowyn ivey’s experience living in the Alaskan wilderness brings a palpable authenticity to The Snow Child. Alaska in the 1920s is a difficult place for Jack and Mabel. Drifting apart, the childless couple discover Faina, a young girl living alone in the wilderness. Soon, Jack and Mabel come to love Faina as their own. But when they learn a surprising truth about the girl, their lives change in profound ways.

    Bonny says: "Magical, realistic and well worth listening to"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Snow Child to be better than the print version?

    The narrator was excellent and added personality to the book that can be missed in print. The audio book was better than any other book I have listened to.


    What other book might you compare The Snow Child to and why?

    I am not sure I have read a contemporary book even close to being as good as this one. It brought me back to my childhood reading Laura Engalls Wilder and being totally lost in the characters. I would go to bed imaging myself as Mabel in Alaska something I lost in adulthood.


    What about Debra Monk’s performance did you like?

    I loved her reading the parts about Esther and and Mable. She made me feel truly like I was in the mind of the characters


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Snow Child an Alaskan a story of love and adventure


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story of being a parent, true love of nature and romance. The best book ever
