“Joe Camp is a master storyteller.” – The New York Times
The anxiously anticipated sequel to the National Best Seller
The Soul of a Horse – Life Lessons from the Herd.
#1 Amazon Best Seller
#1 Amazon “Hot New Releases”
Five years ago I began this book. We had only been horse owners for a year and a half and I had been asking a lot of questions, apparently too loudly too often, about how our new horses should be kept and cared for… and what we could learn by looking to the horses in the wild.
“Not a thing,” I was told, over and over again. “The domestic horse and the horse in the wild are not even the same species anymore.”
That made no sense to me. I remembered a teacher I once had who taught me to make decisions based upon knowledge and wisdom, not hearsay. So we began a new exploration, a new journey, once again charging off into uncharted waters… until we were suddenly stopped cold in our tracks and the book went on the shelf for almost three years. A very important three years, it turned out, that uncovered knowledge and wisdom we didn’t even know we were missing, and conclusions we could never have come to three years earlier. These discoveries astounded us, exhilarated us. And made us better. I hope that the words in this book have melted into the folds of what was being done, not what is being said. For that is their purpose. To create the experience for you that you might live it with us, do it with us. Feel it with us.
And now those words are yours. We hope you’ll find them worthy, and share them often.
