AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Earth My Dearest and The Horse Lover's Quotation Book are two of the newest releases from author Jackie Corley and Hatherleigh Press, each offering encouragement and reverence as they provide daily inspirations highlighting the wonderment of life.

Earth, My Dearest, a compact specialty book, opens with the poem by Rainer Marie Rilke, which mirrors the name and serves as the foundation for the quotes that follow, like seasons, blending into one another.

The Mindful Photographer Book Review – Informative, Insightful, Enlightening

Beginning with "Earth, My Dearest, I will. Oh, believe me, you no longer need your springtimes to win me over-one of them, ah, even one, is already too much for my blood." We understand the short 84-page collection will be one that offers inspiration on nature.

Hatherleigh Press is dedicated to preserving and protecting the resources of the earth, so it is not a surprise that Earth, My Dearest also adds inspiration on conservation, stewardship, and sustainability.

Earth, My Dearest begins with an explanation of the intent to motivate readers to look around themselves and to think bigger than themselves to not only their world, as big or small, limited or expanded, and remember ashes to ashes dust to dust, we have but a brief time on this planet and to use it wisely. Remembering the resources, we abuse will cause a drought for the next generation.

Chapter titles, "a promise to future generations," "the web of life," "conscientious stewards," "moderating our appetites," "take action," "natural world, beautiful world," and ends with a conclusion.

The Horse Lover's Quotation Book also brings to the pages a collection of quotes from equestrian fans around the world. Each celebrating the grace, beauty, spirit and freedom, a horse invokes.

The introduction begins with the author's fascination of the beloved animal. She explains that horses represent a vision of freedom, and immediately the mind conjures images of wild stallions, or those that run free on North Carolina's Outer Banks. It is impossible to read a few short sentences of the 88-pages and not vividly recall a moment when these majestic animals did not transfix or cause pause in the swirling messaging or winds of life.

Policing The City: An Ethno-graphic Book Review – Vivid Presentation of Major City Policing Issues

The Horse Lover's Quotation Book, is filled with wonderful quotes about horses, riding horses, owning horses, loving horses, and everything in between, and brings readers into a deeper connection with these majestic creatures, highlighting on all the joy and surprises that come from loving these animals.

Chapters include "A Taste of Freedom," "Beauty & Grace," "Bond Between Horse & Man," "Spiritual Teachers," "The Healing Power of Horses," and "Training the Rider."

Understanding the deep history the horse has with American culture, and the belief that horses served as spiritual teachers, she pulls quotes that affirm her beliefs.

"When God Wanted to create the horse he said to the South wind, "I want to make a creature of You. Condense." And the Wind condensed." A quote from The Horse Lover's Quotation Book, by Emir Abd-El-Kader.

From just glancing at the pages, a creative brilliance consumes and conjures images. From a distance the horse beckons the imagination to enter into its world, and suddenly the images are filled with misty mornings, small beams of sunlight glistening off the sweat droplets. One small sound, and like the vision in our minds, the horse has evaporated, departed like the south wind.
