    From farmer Joel Salatin's point of view, life in the 21st century just ain't normal. In Folks, This Ain't Normal, he discusses how far removed we are from the simple, sustainable joy that comes from living close to the land and the people we love. Salatin has many thoughts on what normal is and shares practical and philosophical ideas for changing our lives in small ways that have big impact.

    Salatin, hailed by the New York Times as "Virginia's most multifaceted agrarian since Thomas Jefferson [and] the high priest of the pasture" and profiled in the Academy Award-nominated documentary Food, Inc. and the best-selling book The Omnivore's Dilemma, understands what food should be: wholesome, seasonal, raised naturally, procured locally, prepared lovingly, and eaten with a profound reverence for the circle of life. And his message doesn't stop there. From child-rearing, to creating quality family time, to respecting the environment, Salatin writes with a wicked sense of humor and true storyteller's knack for the revealing anecdote.

    Salatin's crucial message and distinctive voice – practical, provocative, scientific, and down-home philosophical in equal measure – make Folks, This Ain't Normal a must-read book.

    This approach to horse training offers everyone who works with horses - novice or expert - a new understanding of how humans work and interact with horses and how doing so can lead to spiritual awakening. Horses have evolved to understand and respond to the flow of vital energy - chi - around them, using it to communicate with members of their herd, express dominance, and sense danger from nearby predators. Being quietly present and receptive to your horse’s chi opens the potential of your emotional, intuitive right brain, awakening your deep sensitivity, calm leadership, intuition, and mindfulness.

    About the author:
    Allan J. Hamilton, MD, is a Harvard-trained brain surgeon, a renowned horse trainer, a developer of equine-assisted learning programs, and the author of Zen Mind, Zen Horse and The Scalpel and the Soul, which won a Silver Nautilus Award in 2009. He is a professor of neurosurgery at the University of Arizona and a medical script consultant for the hit television series Grey’s Anatomy. He raises Lipizzan horses on a small ranch on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona.
