NEW HORSE SERIES
February 1, 2015 by
HORSE RESCUE: TREASURE is the first in a series of horse stories inspired by real horses and horse rescue facilities. TREASURE was written by my daughter, Whitney, who is the author of two books in the Random House HORSE DIARIES series–GOLDEN SUN and DARCY, which I illustrated.
A few summers ago Whitney volunteered at Little Brook Farm in Old Chatham NY, the oldest horse rescue facility in the US. She was greatly impressed by their work, especially the theraputic riding, and the field-trip programs for urban schools. Whitney decided to write a book inspired by the horses there. Like the HORSE DIARIES, this story is told from the horse's point of view.
I was pleased to create the cover illustration for the project, based on a photo of the horse that inspired the story. Whitney generously plans to donate half her proceeds to Little Brook Farm. I encouraged her to publish using Create Space, the Amazon self-publishing arm, so she can control the price and also print books inexpensively for the farm to sell.
If you'd like a poignant read for yourself or a young horse lover, and would like to help support horses in need, here is the link to ORDER THE BOOK.
NOTE: If you purchase TREASURE on Amazon along with either of her other books, DARCY and GOLDEN SUN, which I illustrated, people who buy those on Amazon in the future will see TREASURE listed and more people will find out about it. Since this is self-published, that and social media/word of mouth will be the best ways for people to find out the book exists.
If you are interested in a digital copy --- Here is a link to a Kindle version.
