In All My Relations, Susan Chernak McElroy offers ten poignant stories examining such concepts as ownership, naming and unnaming things, interpreting signs and language, and animals as mirrors of the soul. In these pages, you’ll meet Fashion, the old, arthritic mare who reminds the author of the joys of giving for its own sake; Kulu, the zoo chimpanzee who adopts the author as a surrogate mother and demonstrates the heartbreaking realities of captivity; and a host of other critters who will capture your heart and stir your soul. The meditations and practices that accompany the stories will guide you toward a deeper connection with both the animal world and your own stories.


“Read All My Relations and you’re guaranteed to meet both animals and people at a richer, deeper level.”
— Dr. Marty Becker, resident veterinarian on Good Morning America

“Susan shares transformative stories in her eloquent style that touch the heart of all kindred spirits! Read and heal!”
— Allen M. Schoen, DVM, author of Kindred Spirits

“In All My Relations, Susan inspires us to appreciate the yearnings, trials, and paradoxes of our own interspecies relationships as evidence that life is not a meaningless series of coincidences but a soulful journey filled with wondrous creatures intent on making the trip worthwhile.”
— Linda Kohanov, author of The Tao of Equus and Riding between the Worlds

All My Relations is an inspiring, engaging, enriching, and wonderful book. Susan McElroy’s stories will seduce you — often unawares — as she reminds us that living in harmony with our animal friends is very important for our own and their well-being.”
— Marc Bekoff, author of Minding Animals and coauthor of The Ten Trusts
