Life with horses is challenging, exciting, and always funny when viewed through the eyes of a lifelong horse lover. In Horse Bound, Gallant Hope Farm owner Joanne Friedman invites you to empathize, sympathize, and laugh along as she chronicles the antics of her horses. Friedman shares an entertaining glimpse into a world where horses are her addiction, her sanity, and her source of humor. As she traces the exploits of the horses of her farm and provides time-tested advice based on research and personal experience, she vividly illustrates how she and the horses have learned to coexist and communicate with each other. Through her essays, Friedman recalls the mystery of Mommy Ears, the joy and pain of recognition as time changes how the world transforms the barn and fields, and the myriad of emotions she felt as both her beloved big paint gelding, Zip, and the herd became acclimated to life on the farm. This collection of essays continues the story of a seasoned horse lover’s unforgettable experiences as she comes to realize that being horse bound is her most valuable affliction.

Equines are big business in this country, and that's not to be taken lightly, but as anyone who has spent much time around them knows, horses have a sense of themselves and refuse to be pigeon-holed, catalogued or otherwise restrained. When they are given their due as individual personalities, as they are in this book, an occasional startled giggle has to result. Calling on forty-plus years of experience, extensive research, and lots of trial-and-error, Joanne Friedman has put together a celebration of life with horses. A horseman's most important piece of equipment is a sense of humor, and Friedman liberally spices her advice with horse laughs. Whenever horses are called on to participate in human enlightenment, they do so with great enthusiasm and good humor. Meet the horses that populate Friedman's world, and your perception of life with horses will never be the same. Join Friedman and the horses of Gallant Hope Farm as they slog through mud season, experience Murphy's Law in full effect at a show, set up a (mostly) working farm, and learn about clicker training. Your perception of life with horses will never be the same.

Milton Friedman (1912-2006) was one of the most important 20th century advocates of libertarian and conservative ideas in academia and amongst the wider public. He made a critical contribution to the development of the free market and monetarist economics that challenged the dominant interventionist and Keynesian paradigm throughout the developed world. His books, popular writings, and television programmes, were crucial to the public understanding of the role of the market in the promotion of human freedom and well-being. This outstanding sets out Friedman's intellectual contribution to economic methodology and our understanding of a host of economic phenomena, including the relationship between consumption and income, the workings of flexible exchange rates, and the relationship between inflation and the supply of money in the economy. Dr Ruger also sets out Friedman's contribution to political theory, discussing Friedman's work on the relationship between economic and political freedom, the social responsibilities of business, and the proper relationship between the individual and the state, particularly in the context of conscription, drug prohibition and discrimination.

Most Polish Jews who survived the Second World War did not go to concentration camps, but were banished by Stalin to the remote prison settlements and Gulags of the Soviet Union. Less than ten percent of Polish Jews came out of the war alive—the largest population of Jews who endured—for whom Soviet exile was the main chance for survival. Ellen G. Friedman’s The Seven, A Family Holocaust Story is an account of this displacement. Friedman always knew that she was born to Polish-Jewish parents on the run from Hitler, but her family did not describe themselves as Holocaust survivors since that label seemed only to apply only to those who came out of the concentration camps with numbers tattooed on their arms. The title of the book comes from the closeness that set seven individuals apart from the hundreds of thousands of other refugees in the Gulags of the USSR. The Seven—a name given to them by their fellow refugees—were Polish Jews from Warsaw, most of them related. The Seven, A Family Holocaust Story brings together the very different perspectives of the survivors and others who came to be linked to them, providing a glimpse into the repercussions of the Holocaust in one extended family who survived because they were loyal to one another, lucky, and endlessly enterprising. Interwoven into the survivors’ accounts of their experiences before, during, and after the war are their own and the author’s reflections on the themes of exile, memory, love, and resentment. Based on primary interviews and told in a blending of past and present experiences, Friedman gives a new voice to Holocaust memory—one that is sure to resonate with today’s exiles and refugees. Those with an interest in World War II memoir and genocide studies will welcome this unique perspective.
