A surprise birthday gift plunged Joe Camp and his wife, Kathleen, into the world of horses as complete neophytes without a clue as to what horses needed or wanted. The Camps went searching for logic and sense in the rule books of traditional horse care and what they found was not what they had expected. Written for everyone who has ever loved a horse or even loved the idea of having a horse in their lives, this memoir leads us on a riveting voyage of discovery as Joe and Kathleen navigate uncharted, often politically incorrect territory on their way to achieving a true relationship with their horses. As the creator of the beloved Benji series, Joe has spent most of his life luring us into the heart and soul of a famous dog, but now in this engaging, emotional, and often humorous story, he deftly lures us into the heart and soul of a horse. In doing so, he exposes astonishing truths and unlocks the mystery of a majestic creature who has survived on Earth, without assistance, for fifty-five million years. In a single emotionally charged moment, Camp communes with his first horse, Cash, in a way that changes him and his relationship with horses forever. In his own words, as he stood alone with his back to this horse: The collar of my jacket was tickling the hairs on the back of my neck. And my heart was pounding. Then a puff of warm, moist air brushed my ear. My heart skipped a beat. He was really close. Then I felt his nose on my shoulder . . . I couldn’t believe it. Tears came out of nowhere and streamed down my cheeks. I had spoken to him in his own language, and he had listened . . . and he had chosen to be with me. He had said, I trust you. Ingeniously alternating between the stories of two people thrust into an unfamiliar, enigmatic realm and a fabled herd of wild horses brought to the New World centuries ago, Joe Camp’s valuable and inspiring book teaches us that the lessons he was learning apply not only to his horses but to life and to people as well–to all of us. From the Hardcover edition.

"Joe Camp is a master storyteller." - The New York Times The anxiously anticipated sequel to the National Best Seller The Soul of a Horse - Life Lessons from the Herd. "In Born Wild Joe Camp continues to demonstrate, in simple, unpretentious eloquence, how much we two-legged creatures can learn from horses. One of the rewards for reading the book is that it can be taken literally as the tale of a newborn horse fancier learning his craft, or as the road map for humanity on how to develop leadership in any herd. With humor, affection and discernment, Camp repeatedly underscores that true relationships are built on trust with any creatures."- Jack L. Kennedy, The Joplin Independent Born Wild is a study in trust. A story about molding your life to ask what’s in it for the other person, the dog, the cat, or in this case, the horse. instead of asking what’s in it for yourself. It’s a story about how the soul prospers from sharing, caring, relating, and fulfilling… because nothing can make you feel better than doing something good for another being. And it’s about the fact that there is nothing more important in life than love. This is the synthesis of this book and why it came into being. "Joe Camp's new book "Born Wild" is making me late everywhere...I can't put it down...Kudos Joe!” - Cate Crismani, Editor - True Cowboy Born Wild – The Soul of a Horse is another voyage into uncharted territory from the couple who had no horses and no clue just a few short years ago. A journey of discovery with wild horses going domestic and domestic horses going wild. And a federal agency going mad. Told as only Joe Camp can tell it. For everyone who has ever loved a horse or loved the idea of loving a horse. The author of the highly acclaimed National Best Seller The Soul of a Horse – Life Lessons from the Herd strikes again with an uplifting, inspirational love story of trust, tears and joy that will once again be changing lives for the better all across the planet. More Praise for Joe Camp’s writing: "One cannot help but be touched by Camp's love and sympathy for animals and by his eloquence on the subject." - Michael Korda - The Washington Post "I couldn’t imagine how Joe Camp would top The Soul of a Horse, but he did! I just finished Born Wild. I could not put it down! I haven't been able to get the book off my mind! Camp has such a way of grabbing the reader and not letting go!!! - Yvonne Rawleigh “Joe Camp is a natural when it comes to understanding how animals tick and a genius at telling us their story. His books are must-reads for those who love animals of any species.” - Monty Roberts - Author of New York Timers Best-seller The Man Who Listens to Horses “Somedays this battle has me saying ‘what am I doing? Beating my head against this wall just hurts.’ But then you see something like this book Born Wild and you can say ‘This is why I engage this insanity.’ To see that people like Joe Camp have paid attention... and how deeply this has touched him; and to know that sweet mare that I saw so brutally taken from her home has found a place of understanding in this craziness... well all I can say is "Thank you Joe." – Laura Leigh, Founder – Wild Horse Education “Joe Camp is a gifted storyteller and the results are magical. Joe entertains, educates and empowers, baring his own soul while articulating keystone principles of a modern revolution in horsemanship.” - Rick Lamb - TV/Radio host – The Horse Show "I wish you could hear my excitement for Joe Camp's new book, The Soul of a Horse. It is unique, powerful, needed." - Dr. Marty Becker - Best-selling author of several "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books; Popular veterinary contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America" “An amazing, amazing book."

When Joe Camp, author of the national best seller The Soul of a Horse - Life Lessons from The Herd, and his wife Kathleen were first starting with horses less than five years ago they dove deeply into the training books and DVDs of several of the top clinicians in the United States. They owned virtually everything ever written or videoed by Monty Roberts, Clinton Anderson, and the Pat Parelli and they were bouncing back and forth from one to the other testing what worked best with their horses. But Joe was longing for a compressed, congealed, shuffled together guide to the basics. Not just what works best but why. Now he has one. He wrote it. And now it's yours. A book of the good stuff crammed with everything Joe & Kathleen have learned about relationship and leadership. And why it all works. Including an entire chapter on fear. This book can change your relationship with your horse and teach you to trust yourself to trust yourself, and the stories you love and the information you need will always be with you.

Another eBook and Paperback Nugget from The Soul of a Horse Best selling author Joe Camp and his wife Kathleen were lucky enough to stumble onto Monty Roberts Join-Up before their first horse ever arrived, so that's where they began with each and every one of their herd. And it made such an absolute difference for them to establish relationship first and true leadership right from the get-go. Their herd members are now all willing partners who never stop trying. Stacy Westfall says the best thing she ever did for her training is to do no training whatsoever until the relationship is right. Come along with Joe and Kathleen as they learned what to do, how to do it, and why. And why and how it very simply changed everything with their horses. The stories you love and the information you need will always be with you. What Readers and Critics Are Saying About Joe Camp "Joe Camp is a master storyteller."

Another eBook Nugget from The Soul of a Horse From Joe Camp, best-selling author of The Soul of a Horse: "All of our horses came to us with shoes nailed to their feet. They lived in stalls, ate from bags, all the things everyone told us to do because that's the way it has always been done. Two things changed everything. First, on the very first day our first horse, my Cash, came to us I took him to the round pen and attempted a Monty Roberts Join-Up. When I felt his moist warm breath on my ear, his nose on my shoulder tears came out of nowhere and streamed down my cheeks. I had spoken to him in his own language, and he had listened... and he had chosen to be with me. He had said, I trust you. From that moment I was no longer just a horse owner. I was a partner, a friend, a responsible leader and with that went the obligation and the desire to give him the very best life I could possibly give him. The problem was I didn't know what that was... so I immediately went about the business of finding out. "Come with us as we struggle through the information and mis-information to get to the truth about our horses' feet and ultimate health. What we discovered and what we did. And why."

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

Mit über 200.000 verkauften Exemplaren dominierte „Power – Die 48 Gesetze der Macht“ von Robert Greene monatelang die Bestsellerlisten. Nun erscheint der Klassiker als Kompaktausgabe: knapp, prägnant, unterhaltsam. Wer Macht haben will, darf sich nicht zu lange mit moralischen Skrupeln aufhalten. Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian
