More than 4.6 million Americans own horses or are directly involved in horse-related industries. And country living is enjoying a huge revival today. Horsewoman Rebecca Ondov reaches out to outdoor enthusiasts with dynamic stories of Gods faithfulness and protection.
Drawing on 15 years of living in the saddle guiding pack trips and working as a wilderness ranger, Rebecca takes readers into the mountains and down rugged trails to see God at work. Vignettes include
- a night-blind horse and pack mules unusual relationship
- a horse, a dog, and a cowgirl surviving a violent storm
- a horse camp tale about one animals cure for snoring
- a frisky cayuse and an early morning chase
- a sleepless night guarding horses in grizzly country
These western stories use real-life adventures to point readers to their greatest resource for love, provision, and careJesus.

Horse Tales from Heaven surprised and delighted me. Eloquent vignettes are presented that are so real, so crisp that it often felt like I was actually there. I loved the openness of the author, the Scripture references and the prayers. I highly recommend Horse Tales from Heaven.

Rebecca's writings reflect a love for God that seems to permeate her approach to her everyday life and shows that she has a passion to live her life close to Him and for Him. It was interesting to me to see how often she was alone in the wilderness but her attitude never exhibited loneliness and she always seemed to know that God was close at hand.
This book was inspiring. I often found myself literally wide eyed with wonder at her descriptions of the landscapes and how she handled the various struggles, emotionally and physically she encountered. Through prayer, and an unflinching look at her own opportunities for growth through these challenges, the reader gets a sense of her character and grit. Being a Christian myself, and from a more congested area of our Nation, the vastness she describes leaves me wishing with all my heart that my horse and Iand Godcould ride off with her on one of her 4 hour treks through the wilderness. Her book put me right there. I loved this book!
Whether a horse lover or not, these stories are great examples of perseverance, faith, and the joy that can come from the simplest experiences in life.
