Editorial Reviews

Review

Horse Tales from Heaven surprised and delighted me. Eloquent vignettes are presented that are so real, so crisp that it often felt like I was actually there. I loved the openness of the author, the Scripture references and the prayers. I highly recommend Horse Tales from Heaven.”
Pastor Ron Beckham, Senior Pastor, Friday Study Ministries



“Rebecca's writings reflect a love for God that seems to permeate her approach to her everyday life and shows that she has a passion to live her life close to Him and for Him. It was interesting to me to see how often she was alone in the wilderness but her attitude never exhibited loneliness and she always seemed to know that God was close at hand.”
―Wayne Brooks



“This book was inspiring. I often found myself literally wide eyed with wonder at her descriptions of the landscapes and how she handled the various struggles, emotionally and physically she encountered. Through prayer, and an unflinching look at her own opportunities for growth through these challenges, the reader gets a sense of her character and grit. Being a Christian myself, and from a more congested area of our Nation, the vastness she describes leaves me wishing with all my heart that my horse and I―and God―could ride off with her on one of her 4 hour treks through the wilderness. Her book put me right there. I loved this book!”
―Terry deHaan



“Whether a horse lover or not, these stories are great examples of perseverance, faith, and the joy that can come from the simplest experiences in life.”
―Thomas Rogers

Format: Paperback
After trying college in an urban environment, Rebecca Ondov walked away, finding her career --- and her place --- in the mountain wilderness of Montana. First hired as a ranch cook, she quickly agreed to "training 19 wild mules and 1 wild horse." She is soon out on the trails, setting up camp and cooking for wranglers and hunters, loading and leading pack mules, praying away grizzly bears... I leave other laborious jobs to your imagination. Not being a farm girl, camper, hunter, or horse lover, I sometimes got lost in the wilderness vocabulary. (For others like me, an illustrated glossary is provided.) It's just very clear that Ondov chose a physically demanding job that she generally seemed to relish, despite its freezing temperatures and perilous terrain. She worked in the wilderness for 15 years, two of them as a ranger and inspector for the Forest Service, traveling alone by horseback from camp to camp.

That's the setting for Ondov's book of more than 50 devotionals, each a self-contained story with a strong spiritual/moral point. (There's nothing subtle about the "take-away" element.) At the end, she includes a very forthright evangelistic presentation.

The book is best read as it's intended --- as a devotional, one story per day, rather than as a sit-down, read-straight-through narrative. My favorite stories are about the animals she cares for and who sometimes care for her --- horses, colts, mules, donkeys, dogs --- and about learning to work as a member of a team, pulling together for a common purpose. Anyone intending to go on a wilderness hunt or wrangling trip might want to read Ondov's reflections to see her perspective of what makes for a good ranch guest --- or not.

Rebecca, I finished your book today. It was wonderful! I really got a blessing from reading it. Not only did I feel like I was riding on the trails with you all, I was also reminded that God is always in control no matter how bad we think things get, as long as we believe in him. Thank you for sharing these experiences. God Bless!

I enjoyed reading the various experiences the author had with horses. Each story relates to a happening in the Bible or a passage from it. It helps to connect everyday happenings with the word of God.

This is a tremendous book. Rebecca's heart sings out in every page. You feel her love for Christ as well as His love for her. Even though you want to read the whole book immediately, take your time and read slowly and really ingest the word. You will surely be blessed when you finish.

I bought this book for my husband, who just gobbled it up. The stories are very short, a few pages. They recount the author's experience as a ranger in the west. Very interesting if you are an outdoorsman.

Excellent stories about riding horse in the majestic mountain wilderness of Montana-many of which kept me on the edge of my seat! The stories made me feel like I was experiencing them myself. The author does a wonderful job humbly reminding herself (and the reader) of Biblical application in our daily lives. Great read!!

Wow! A friend of mine gave me this book. I was amazed how good it was! I started reading it and I had trouble putting it down. I limited myself to read only a chapter at a time after finishing my third chapter because I was in need of a good devotional. The Lord was able to speak to me in wonderful ways as I put myself into some of the author's adventures on the trails of her life. I could see God's hand at work in creation as well as in the smaller things of life. I highly recommend this book. I especially recommend it to those who like horses and the great outdoors.
