Horse Nation:
True Stories About People and Horses
By Teresa Tsimmu Martino Available October 2004
 

So begins Teresa Martino's book on her life with horses--a life rich with adventurous and touching stories that speak to every animal lover. For more than forty years Martino has lived and worked with horses, hearing their stories and learning their lessons. In Horse Nation she tells of the heroes and the fallen, the defiant and the healers, the gentle pony and the angry stallion: Casey, the blood bay, who jumped a teenage girl over her mother's sports car in a rite of passage; Icy, a black mare, strong and independent, who embodied the circle of life; and The Corinthian, a gray gelding, defining what it means to be a champion. From classic dressage to bone-breaking cross-country jumping, Martino writes lovingly and humorously of the equine lifestyle. Martino writes also of the riders, grooms, coaches, and students who have walked and breathed the equine path like acolutes. Martino's poems and sketches further illuminate this lyrical exploration of the unique relationship between horse and human. When Martino was a child, her father once told her, "the horses are blessed, chosen by God." She took her father's words to heart and has built a remarkable life with horses.

Includes line drawings by the author.

Teresa tsimmu Martino lives on Vashon Island in the Pacific Northwest where she writes, trains horses, and is the director of Wolftown, a nonprofit organization founded by Martino that is dedicated to wolf and horse rescue. Martino founded the nonprofit organization, Wolftown, which is dedicated to horse and wolf rescue. The horses are rescued from abusive homes and situations, abandoned by previous owners, injured at the racetrack and ready to be sold overseas as horsemeat, and sometimes from the wild. Wolftown also works with young people, some facing their own personal crises, to teach them compassion and empathy while caring for the animals. Young people who volunteer at Wolftown witness, firsthand, how animals respond to love and compassion, and they, too, learn to love and be kind. Martino uses the balance and wisdom of the animals as well to teach the kids, who are healing from their own emotional injuries.
