'In their innocence and wisdom, in their connection to the earth and its most ancient rhythms, animals show us a way back to a home they never left' says Susan Chernak McElroy, who owes her triumph over cancer to the love of her dog, Keesha - and to the courage she found in the act of saving a dying cat. In "Animals as Healers and Teachers", she tells her own story and gathers those from others whose lives have been touched by the transforming power of animals. The stories are arranged into categories including animals as guardians, animals in dreams and visions and animals as soul-menders. "Animals as Healers and Teachers" is a reminder of the lessons we can learn - and the healing we can receive - from the relationship we have with animals.From the Back Cover:
