The series of essays created concerning this journey were published, and then picked up and re-published several years later, in two different Pagan-themed magazines, Hole in the Stone, based in Denver, Colorado, and The Rune, published in Kansas City, Missouri. When possible, I have copied the essays as they originally appeared in one or the other of the magazines and others are printed out of my own archives. The illustrations printed in Hole in the Stone, and reproduced here, are by Steven Clark. Photographs in the articles are by George Moyer. The essays represent my evolution as both a spiritual being and as a writer over the years between 1994 in 2000. Requests for reprints of the essays have inspired me to publish the collection in bound form. I have now lived on Thistle Hill for 22 years and consider it one of the most powerful forces for evolution I have ever encountered. I would not be who I am without the story and context of this sacred space

The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats

In the hugely popular New York Times bestseller, Dogs Never Lie About Love, provocative psychoanalyst Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson brilliantly navigated the inner landscape of “man’s best friend.” Now he delves deep into the secretive, playful world of cats, revealing emotions, debunking myths, and honoring the feline’s evolution from solitary jungle creature to human companion. Drawing from literature, history, animal behavioral research, and the wonderful true stories of cat experts and cat lovers around the world, Jeffrey Masson vividly explores the delights and mysteries of the feline heart. But at the core of this remarkable book are Masson’s candid, often amusing observations of his own five cats. Their mischievousness, aloofness, and affection provide a way to examine emotions from contentment to jealousy, from anger to love. Consider the question: Are cats selfish? While human egocentricity is defined by how little a person cares about others, the cat’s narcissism is not like that at all. Cats may appear self-centered, but they watch us all the time, taking us in. They see us; they notice us–a far cry from vanity. Cats are curious, a trait that rarely kills them. On the contrary, it gives them the chance to assess, in their own idiosyncratic way, whether we are worthy of their attention. Cats are happy to be themselves. What they think of us is a different question entirely. “We need cats to need us,” notes Masson, “It unnerves us that they do not. However, if they do not need us, they nonetheless seem to love us.” The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats will captivate readers with its surprises and insights, offering a new perspective on the deep connection shared by humans and their feline friends. This is the book that Masson’s many fans and cat lovers everywhere have been waiting for.

Roger Caras's exhilarating exploration of the enduring ties between man and beast, brings to light the far-reaching impact domesticated animals have had on shaping the course of human civilization. Spanning centuries of history, Caras discusses the birth of agriculture through the domestication of sheep and goats and the role of the camel in bringing about the meeting of Eastern and Western cultures. Additionally, he shows the aid horses, donkeys and other beasts of burden have given, from construction to transportation, vastly reducing human toil and hardship. Plus the often understimated contributions of dogs, who have served not only as faithful friends, but as a diligent herders, hunters, and guards. As much about humans as animals, A PERFECT HARMONY is a landmark work, a compelling exploration of a vital but virtually ignored aspect of human history.
