Books Info:

Mestengo free pdf Exhausted by her job as a political press secretary, Melinda Roth found the courage to escape. Her goal: a simpler life in rural Illinois that would let her pursue her passion for writing. But then real life intervened. A fire at a neighboring farm and a misinterpreted gesture of kindness transformed her into the reluctant caretaker of a homeless menagerie of animals. Roth, coauthor of the" New York Times"-bestseller "From Baghdad with ""Love," writes vividly, movingly, and often humorously of the chaos that descended into her life. One of her new tenants was a wild mustang, broken but not bowed, his restless spirit propelling him to escape the fences and pens that enclosed him--a far different life than before he was violently captured by a government-sponsored "round-up." Ultimately these two fiercely independent characters each provide the catalyst for the other's life-changing and life-affirming decisions."Mestengo" is a captivating, emotional account that taps into readers' love of animals: "Marley and Me" meets "The Horse Whisperer." An entertaining and delightful read, it is a cinematic, sometimes tense, but always beautiful story of the power of healing.
