"Home at Last: Stories from a Sanctuary," is a collection of moving and inspiring stories and essays that celebrate the sanctity of life and illuminate the peace and harmony that result when beings, animal or human, live according to their true nature -at home at last- a state of being as well as a place. The author, Jim Kyle, co-founder of the Home at Last Sanctuary, writes in a singular voice about his experiences of living amongst a huge herd of unadoptable, unwanted horses that he and Donna, his wife of 50 years, have given a caring and forever home. An assortment of donkeys, mules, calves, and goats have also found their way to this haven where each animal has a tale of being cast away to come to find healing and redemption being at home, at last, safe and secure until the end of their days. Jim tells their sometimes heart-breaking but ultimately uplifting stories with great compassion and tenderness. The book also contains musings about the value of every life and observations on everyday life lived amongst over 100 animals in their care. Informative essays about horsemanship and the true nature of equines are infused by Jim's great love of these magnificent creatures and will provide great food for thought. From the book: "The accepted notion is that these beings live "in the moment," that they are existentialists in the extreme. They move into a future that is not pondered or worried about and their past is not reflected upon. I'm pretty sure that's way oversimplified. I prefer to believe they live in a state of grace. They are able to transcend their past and to move to the future unfettered by foolish fears, but with the wisdom of experience. There is no argument about the capacity of their memories. There's no mistaking their intelligence or sensitivity. They are sentient in the full meaning of that word. They know who they are and who others are. They have friends, sense loss, celebrate reunions, and suffer separation. They can become ill from stress and worry and become healthy with a sense of peace and security. They choose to reveal only as much of themselves as they wish to share with our kind. To get past their "outer shell" takes a lot of time and an understanding of how their kind defines trust. But I have had an opportunity to have them share with me and let me come to know them when they are home and living as they were intended to live. It is and has been remarkable. Do these magnificent animals sense that they are home, at last? I would say, without hesitation, yes they do. They know that this is their place. They know it very soon after they arrive here. Nice to be able to offer that to them. Humbling." Net proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to support the animals at Home at Last Sanctuary.

About MR Jim Kyle

Jim Kyle is a former soldier, cop, teacher, principal, and school superintendent. He founded the Home at Last Sanctuary with his wife of 50 years, Donna Kyle, also a former teacher. Jim and Donna met and married while attending Cal-Poly at Pomona, which has a culture of "service before self" that they have strived to embody their whole lives. After Donna recovered from cancer and Jim recovered from a life-threatening auto accident, they decided to celebrate by getting a mule, as they were eager to bring equines back into their lives. Jim had spent his childhood summers on his uncle's vast cattle ranch, where he began riding at age five. Donna got her first horse at age 11 and took great delight in riding off at sun-up and returning home at sunset. When Maybelle, a mule, arrived at their place, she had Jessie another mule, and Sweet, a Kiger mustang, with her. Six weeks later, Breeze Bay came to live with them. More critters were soon to follow. In six months they had taken in 17 horses in need and the Home at Last Sanctuary was born.
