Because Of A Horse is Helen Scanlon’s first poetry collection and pays tribute to the timeless beauty and nobility of the horse. Helen Scanlon is an author and artist based in Connecticut. This is her fifth book.
A journey familiar to any equestrian, the author presents a frank and sometimes humorous look into the world of the horse and those that care for them through smart, witty prose and stunning signature illustrations. The collection opens with a familiar scene of carefree horses living in their own world (“Celtic Hill”), and then later tugs at the heartstrings with emotive and evocative tales of lessons learned, human compassion, and gentle grace. In her inaugural poetry collection, Scanlon captures moments of truth, joy, humanity, and redemption that are only possible… Because of a Horse. ~An Amazon review
