What the Animals Taught Me is a heart-warming collection of stories about rescued farm animals in a shelter in Sonoma illustrates how animals can teach us to see and embrace others as they truly are and reconnect with the natural world.
Wishing to escape the urban rat race, freelance writer and editor Stephanie Marohn moved to rural northern California in 1993. Life was sweet. She was a busy freelancer. In return for reduced rent, she fed and cared for two horses and a donkey. Her life was full.
And then, the farm animals started to appear: a miniature white horse, a donkey, sheep, and chickens, followed by deer and other wildlife. Each one needed sanctuary either from abuse, physical injury, or neglect. Marohn took each animal in and gradually turned her 10 acre spread into an animal sanctuary that cares for farm animals.
In What the Animals Taught Me, each chapter focuses on the story of an animal that became part of Marohn's life. She shares what she learned from her experiences - from the sheep she rescued from an animal collector, to an abused donkey she helped nurse back to health, these stories are deeply inspirational.

Stephanie Marohn is a medical journalist and non-fiction writer and the author of the Healthy Mind series for Hampton Roads. She runs an animal sanctuary in Sonoma County, CA.
