The Spiritual Nature of Animals: A Country Vet Explores the Wisdom, Compassion, and Souls of Animals
Karlene Stange starts her book with the first of her numerous animal stories: trying to save a three-day-old foal who fell into an irrigation ditch. These stories are fascinating and hold your interest as the author, an ambulatory veterinarian, relates her professional experience in The Spiritual Nature of Animals. Animal lovers will love these stories, written well, clearly, and with an entertaining style. She carries all that she needs for visiting patients in her fully equipped van. Stange departs from other veterinarians in her practice, using acupuncture and practicing traditional Chinese medicine. In-between the stories, she delves into the spiritual and philosophical. The readers learn, for example, about Hopi mythology, Australian aborigines, and the way ancient Hebrews, Egyptians, and Chinese believed in the spiritual nature of animals. Many superscript numbers refer to Notes and References at the end of the book. Who was this book written for: academes or average readers? Even if you need to skip pages, even chapters, this is good reading for most readers.
