Strawberry Roan: Growing Up in the Shadow of Hermit's Peak by Judy Vaughan
Keywords: Non-Fiction, Memoir, Southwest, Equestrian, Northern New Mexico
Strawberry Roan is one woman's search for meaning in a world of competition, isolation and passion. Her family is loving and supportive but her father's pressures become her own.
She becomes a horsewoman, a breeder and raiser of horses, a kind of equine princess who must always win competitively against girls somehow better equipped than she. In time her life pursuits lead her towards doctoring and she becomes a neurologist with a driving ambition to help people who are on the edge. Sadly, the pressures here are complex and so is her unraveling marriage. She wins only by rugged individualism and the absolute will to win.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Over the course of twenty-seven years treating patients in emergency rooms, Dr. Mona Balogh observed a tendency - from diabetes to addiction - for some people to chronically use ERs to address their disease when lifestyle changes could help their condition immensely.
How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room addresses a panoply of bad habits and addictions through captivating stories of Dr. Balogh’s interactions with patients who repeatedly returned to her emergency room due to their tendency to avoid making lifestyle changes.
The second part of the book moves into action, presenting a roadmap to creating healthy new habits complete with worksheets. By applying the Eastern concept of balance of opposing forces with the 12 Steps and Vipassana-inspired meditations, the book provides a foundation for the reader to help themselves escape from whatever unhealthy rut in which they find themselves. And In a series of powerful meditations we get in touch with our Higher Self.
How to Stay Out of My Emergency room calls upon time-honored principles to help us stop blaming everybody and everything around us and use tools outlined in the book to fulfill the vision that we have for ourselves and our life.
Not since the 7 Habits of Effective People has there been an “instruction manual” that powerfully presents such a positive program of living. This book will be useful to the health professional, the caregiver and for anyone who is ready to do what is necessary to transform their lives and become their very best self.
