From Library Journal
Author McElroy obviously loves and has a great deal of empathy for animals. Her premise here is that animals have a more significant role in our lives than is generally accepted. Exploring the psychological and spiritual bonds between various people and animals, she reads letters and talks of her own experiences. Examining the evolution of animals in our society, she indicates that we have lost much of our ability to truly appreciate our domestic animals and those in the wild. Much discussion is devoted to the terrible destruction?and the beginning of restoration?of the wolf. McElroy does not sugar-coat her message about our role, our relationships with, and our responsibility toward the animals in our care. To some listeners, this will be a little esoteric and lacking in solid fact for their liking. Those less concerned with scientific evidence will enjoy the stories and letters that she shares. Libraries serving large numbers of animal lovers and cancer patients (McElroy includes inspiring bits about her experience as a cancer survivor) should be interested.?Carolyn Alexander, Brigadoon Lib., Salinas, Cal.

I learned valuable concepts and though I have always been an animal and nature advocate, this book elevated my already deep compassion for animals to an even higher level.
There's is always more to learn about life and this book will certainly teach you!
I continue to recommend this book and have sent it out as a gift to others.
Thank you Susan Chernak McElroy!
I've expected to find out in what way animals could be "used" in some particular treatments. I know that there are some clinics where animals are good "medicaments" for mental patients and not only for them. For example people could soothe their pain in arms or legs with the help of their pets. The pets could lie on the painful spot and their positive energy could reduce the owner's pain or even cure him. So, I've expected that kind of stories...
