9780979766503: She Only Wants a Horse

The small town of Tolleson Arizona was little more than a smattering of dusty houses when Dan and Judy moved there. All they had were love, dreams, and determination. They wanted a ranch. They had to have a ranch. Nancy was barely a toddler, but she knew very well what she wanted. The horse across the fence called to her each day. She wanted a horse. She had to have a horse. This is a story of dreams, and all that comes bundled with them. Funny, charming, and heartwarming, Judith Chase weaves together stories from her life to give readers hope and happiness. Her stories show the joys of the simple life and the charm and value that families and animals bring. She Only Wants a Horse abounds with love and laughter, and stands a testament to the powers of hard work and a little fun. Every day on the farm brought more adventure to this hardworking couple and their faithful band of children and animals. From meddlesome sheep to affectionate cows, farm life was far from ordinary. This is a book to be treasured, enjoyed, and passed on through the generations. This book is permission to dream.

Review:

I received this book as a present at Christmas; my family knows all about my penchant for local authors and memoirs, and this book offered both. In it, we follow Judith Chase through all the tribulations of a penniless, big-dream life with the man she loves, the family she loves, and the animals she loves, all set against the backdrop of a simpler time and a simpler place (no offense, Arizona). As do all memoirs, this book offers a look into the life of someone; however, this someone is not famous, not ostensibly extraordinary, not wealthy or powerful, and not incredibly learned. Instead, what we have here are the recollections of a ranch mother who spends every waking hour trying to improve her ranch family's ranch life; who talks like 1930s Hollywood movie stars; and who loves to grow things, own land, nurture animals, and take risks. The immense value in memoirs by these, the "unextraordinary" people we run across every day, proceeds from the fact that they enable us to see the world from a point of view that we could never fully comprehend on our own. Unless we were ranch mothers. I am not a ranch mother. This incredibly human look at life reminds us that the world is full of people, not just faces, each with his or her own stories, trials, dreams, and Hereford calves. While this book isn't exactly for horse-lovers, as the title might suggest, it is for anyone who understands or wants to understand a life lived in the pursuit of dreams, no matter how modest or magnificent they may be. Judith's "horse" is a ranch full of love. What will ours be? --Amazon customer A. Mellis (California)
