Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As terror swept Zimbabwe’s farms early this century, a couple known as the horse people began to shelter the animals left behind. Retzlaff recounts the journey she and her husband undertook in this plainspoken, heartfelt memoir. Hounded from farm to farm for years by hordes of President Robert Mugabe’s men, they belong to a community besieged. Their escape is filled with midnight rescue runs, forced departures in a matter of hours, theft, and betrayal. Retzlaff is at her best in her loving descriptions of the horses’ personalities, allowing the reader to get to know the animals as individuals. The Retzlaffs’ deep feeling for their charges will appeal to animal lovers of all stripes. Overall, the writing lacks shine, but the story of the brave battle the Retzlaffs wage on behalf of the vulnerable herd does not require sparkling prose to make an impression. The couple’s story—a drastic example of standing up for those you love—showcases the seemingly small but deeply significant heroism of doing the right thing, --Bridget Thoreson

Review

“After reading One Hundred and Four Horses, the phrases “horse rescue” and “let’s make a plan” have new meaning. This is a compelling, touching and sometimes grisly account, and to read it is to understand in a new way the power of the horse-human bond.” (Lawrence Scanlan, author of Wild About Horses: Our Timeless Passion for the Horse)

One Hundred and Four Horses is a breathless adventure . . . an incredible story of a family that decided the lives of the animals they loved was worth risking their own. . . . You will mourn and celebrate with [Retzlaff] at every step along the way.” (Conor Grennan, New York Times bestselling author of Little Princes)

“Dramatic, emotionally charged.” (Daily Mail (London))

“The dramatic narrative of their dangerous journey… gives this epic its nail-biting edge. The horses, each with its own character, are the stars.” (The Times (London))
