Dreaming of Pegasus: Equine Imaginings
Edited by Lynda Birke and Harry Wels
This is a book about passion for horses; contributors write about the horses in their lives, and how relationships with these wonderful animals have shaped their life journeys, their dreams, and also their professional careers as academics.
In particular, they muse upon how imagining and being with horses influences how they, as researchers, investigate horses and their relationship with humans. These chapters introduce many different equine characters, in many different stories and in various places around the world. These are stories of love, and also of loss. They are also stories of love and loss of our great friend, Karen Dalke, with whom we have shared many tales of equine adventures, but who died suddenly in 2018. Karen was a compassionate horsewoman, whose life and work were intertwined with the lives of these wonderful animals. This book is both a tribute to her, and also to the many horses we have known and with whom we have shared our lives.
