Publisher's Summary

A Horse Fiction Book for Adults

Racism can linger in the strangest of places. Sometimes, even within yourself.

For Clara Lacroix, the past was the place she chose to dwell. That's where her memories of Boone, and the life they shared, resided.

But for Joe Black Hawk, the past was a painful mix of a fading heritage he didn't want to lose, and a string of mistakes he'd just as soon forget.

Spanning thousands of acres across the Sandhills of Nebraska, Crossroads Ranch operates as a mustang training facility and equine-assisted psychotherapy practice.

Here, in the beautifully rugged grasslands over which the Lakota Sioux once roamed freely, the lives of fifth-generation rancher, Clara LaCroix, and fifth-generation reservation Indian, Joe Black Hawk, collide in a tragic event that fuels an eruption of racial bitterness.

As each struggle to cope with their own personal loss, both must learn to navigate the present with tolerance and, ultimately, forgiveness in order to reconcile with the past and one another.

As the first novel to portray the process and effects of equine-assisted psychotherapy, No Dogs or Indians is the story about the importance of history, the relevance of ancestry, and the critical balance between remembering the roots that set us apart while celebrating the humanity that binds us together.

    Story
    "Worth a Listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of No Dogs or Indians to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. I only listened to the audio book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the fact that the author looked at the cold harsh fact of racism, sexism, and ageism. That Hare took the time to interview real life people and to review all of her facts before writing her novel. I personally found the factual details very interesting. They were in part why I found this novel to be so intriguing.


    Have you listened to any of Janelle Tedesco’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening to one of Tedesco's performances. She is a very talented artist. You could tell that she took her time to prepare and flesh out each character. She did a nice job with changing her vocal range for each character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are some extremely heart breaking moments in this book. If you are looking for something comical and fluffy to listen to this is not it. Although, this novel is heart warming, intense, vulnerable, and sad. When the mustangs are released, I began to cry at the fact that once again the main characters favorite horse has something tragic happen to it. Trying not to give too much away.


    Any additional comments?

    This novel was the perfect companion on a long road trip. It kept me awake wondering what would happen next. I highly recommend this novel if you are a fan of factual fiction, a lover of horses, and spiritual connections.

    Story
    "Reader brings story to life"

    I loved this book. The characters have great back-stories and I like how their lives converge in this emotion-filled tale. I would love to know what happens next in the lives of these characters. The reader is fantastic! Her ability to do different voices (both male and female) for each character brought the story to life. I literally wept for these characters as their journey unfolded. As an avid audiobook listener, I will definitely look for more books read by Janelle Tedesco.

    Story
    "A rich story of the connections of people & horses"
    What made the experience of listening to No Dogs or Indians the most enjoyable?

    Firstly I loved voice of the narrator. I have given up listening to voices that grate on me.
    Her voice was perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Dogs or Indians?

    There were too many to mention.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say that I enjoyed the scenes that spoke of the beauty and space that the book was written in.


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

    Everyone has a past and must learn to respect it without letting it devour you


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the subject matter and will recommend it to my friends. Need to also get the paper copy.
    Pease continue with this narrator and don't switch.
