|Communicating With Animals: The Spiritual Connection Between People and Nature
Arthur Myers; Paperback - 256 pages
I truly believe this is the best book I have written, and I've written quite a few. I feel it is the most spiritual, and also the most fun to read, of any I've written. Communicating with animals - and nature in general - is really exciting, and it's for real. I interviewed some 50 professional animal communicators, and they are impressive people - educated, intelligent, idealistic and spiritual. They all say the same things - that animals are automatically telepathic; that humans are also telepathic, even though most of us have forgotten this - but we can learn to remember it; that animals reincarnate; that they sometimes return to the same people in different bodies; that they have ghosts; that they can be healed, physically and emotionally; that they sometimes heal us humans. - Art Myers, Author
|Conversations With Animals: Cherished Messages and Memories As Told by an Animal Communicator
Lydia Hiby and Bonnie Weintraub; Paperback - 192 pages (May 28, 1998)
The authors' experiences, stories, and suggestions for communicating with your own animal, make this book a fascinating read. Lydia Hiby has been talking with animals for some 18 years, primarily using what she describes as "picture talking." Thousands of clients (people and animals) attest to the authenticity of Hiby's work as an animal communicator, and that improved communication between animals and humans definitely makes a difference in their lives. My hope as publisher is that this book will open more human eyes to the reality that all animals are living beings deserving of the same respect and compassion that human beings accord one another. Perhaps when humans learn to treat animals with respect and compassion, we will then learn to do the same with one another. -- Maureen R. Michelson

|DOG MAN: AN UNCOMMON LIFE ON A FARAWAY MOUNTAIN
by Martha Sherrill
How one man's consuming passion for dogs saved the legendary Akita breed from extinction and led him to a difficult, more soulful way of life in the wilds of Japan's remote snow country.
After the Japanese surrender in 1945, there were only sixteen Akita dogs left in the country. The magnificent and fiercely loyal Japanese hunting dogs had been donated to help in the war effort, or had been eaten, their pelts used by the military to line the winter coats of soldiers.
At ninety-four years old, Morie still raises and trains the Akita dogs that have come to symbolize his life.
|DOGS NEVER LIE ABOUT LOVE
Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson; Paperback - 274 pages (September 1998)
"Dogs feel more than I do (I am not prepared to speak for other people)," Sanskrit scholar Masson asserts. "They feel more, and they feel more purely and more intensely." Often, however, he seems to be writing less about animals than humans: "In searching for why we are so inhibited compared with dogs, perhaps we can learn to be as direct, as honest, as straightforward, and especially as intense in our feelings as dogs are." Masson offers several proofs that dogs do take the high moral road. --Kerry Fried

|In the Company of Animals: A Study of Human-Animal Relationships (Canto)
James Serpell; Paperback Revised edition (October 1996)
Contrasting the way we love some animals while ruthlessly exploiting others, this study provides a detailed and fascinating account of the ways in which animal companionship can influence our health. It provides a key to the moral contradiction inherent in our treatment of animals and nature. What purpose, if any, do pets really serve? Are they simply an outlet for misplaced love? Or four-legged friends who help us to satisfy vital emotional needs? Whatever they are, when we elevate pets to the status of social companions, we undermine the distinction between human and non-human. In other words, pets force us to confront the moral contradictions inherent in our treatment of animals in general. Pursuing this idea to its logical conclusion, the author uncovers a fascinating and disturbing trail of myths, evasions and double standards which humans have used since earliest times to justify their subjugation of nature and other life forms. Through an exploration of the phenomenon of pet-keeping across history and between cultures, this thought-provoking study reassesses our relationships with animals and the natural world.

Stephanie Laland; 1997; paperback; 224 pages
Peaceful Kingdom chronicles amazing true stories of devotion and bravery from the animal world.

Even ants are caught in heroic acts: they're observed pulling a thorn from an injured comrade. The animals in this book are viewed as compassionate, thinking creatures that experience real emotions--hardly news to animal lovers. Peaceful Kingdom also reflects human acts of kindness to animals. Edward Lear, the famous author of "The Owl and the Pussycat," built his new house as an exact replica of his old one to keep from traumatizing his beloved cat.
