The homesteading adventures of Jenna Woginrich have caught the imagination of thousands who dream of a more self-sufficient lifestyle. As she learns to farm by trial and error, she records her offbeat observations and poignant moments with honesty, humility, and humor. In BarnHeart, she tells the story of her quest to find a permanent home for herself and her livestock -- a herd of sheep, a flock of chickens, some geese and ducks, rabbits, a goat, and a turkey. Even when taking on cranky neighbors, small-town politics, and the difficulties of running a farm alone on a shoestring budget, she never loses her sense of humor. You'll find inspiration in this entertaining tale of longing and striving for a more authentic life.

About the Author
Jenna Woginrich is a 20-something homesteader and the author of Chick Days and Made from Scratch. She blogs at Cold Antler Farm, as well as Mother Earth News and The Huffington Post. A Pennsylvania native, she has made her home in the mountains of Tennessee, in northern Idaho, in rural Vermont, and most recently in upstate New York, where she lives with a flock of Scottish Blackface sheep, a border collie in training, chickens and geese, a hive of bees, and several amiable rabbits.

This approach to horse training offers everyone who works with horses - novice or expert - a new understanding of how humans work and interact with horses and how doing so can lead to spiritual awakening. Horses have evolved to understand and respond to the flow of vital energy - chi - around them, using it to communicate with members of their herd, express dominance, and sense danger from nearby predators. Being quietly present and receptive to your horse’s chi opens the potential of your emotional, intuitive right brain, awakening your deep sensitivity, calm leadership, intuition, and mindfulness.

About the author:
Allan J. Hamilton, MD, is a Harvard-trained brain surgeon, a renowned horse trainer, a developer of equine-assisted learning programs, and the author of Zen Mind, Zen Horse and The Scalpel and the Soul, which won a Silver Nautilus Award in 2009. He is a professor of neurosurgery at the University of Arizona and a medical script consultant for the hit television series Grey’s Anatomy. He raises Lipizzan horses on a small ranch on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona.
