Many of us are familiar with Penny Porter's delightful stories as they appeared in The Readers' Digest. Finally, she has collected them in a hardbound edition with wonderful pen and ink illustrations by Marilu Savage sprinkled throughout the book. The main characters of these stories are farm animals and wild creatures who are marred in some way; but, Ms Porter's love and family values shine.These stories are inspirational in their love and nurturing care for all things, whether its the harsh Arizona desert, young children that arrive in middle age, or wild animals that most people would leave for dead or just shoot in order to end their misery. Ms Porter reveals that common sense and devotion to all living things are their own rewards. Her writing style is clear and concise. One only hopes for more than the abridged stories that frequent The Readers' Digest. These are stories that will keep you amused. They are perfect for bedtime stories and armchair traveling.

HEARTSTRINGS & TAILTUGGERS is simply wonderful, a collection of Porter's animal stories depicting life on a ranch in southern Arizona. Many of these were serialized in Reader's Digest -- they're that good! This is a book that sticks with you, all heart and a lot of humor, too. It's a perfect gift book, sure to please and warm hearts. Don't send flowers; send Ms. Porter's book. Wish I could give it 10 stars!

Any human being of any age who loves animals will simply love this book by Penny Porter. It is packed with stories about courageous, heroic, and pathetic little creatures looking for just a little love and understanding. If you're a true animal lover, this book will have you laughing and crying. But, you'll proably cry more than laugh when you read about some of these wild, domesticated, injured, lovable, and totally beguiling creatures of the Arizona desert.

“What a wonderful wonderful book you have written!  And what an astonishing talent you have for saying the profound with simplicity and grace.  It can’t be easy, but you make it seem so.  I’m in awe.  Thank you from me and Cochise County.
