About Ask for Horses: Memoir of a Dream-Guided Life:
An adventure story in two realms, a conversation between the visible and invisible worlds: in this eloquent memoir, Tina Tau reveals the life-saving intelligence of her dreams. As a young woman she tries to outrun her pain by moving every year, often thousands of miles at a time. But by paying attention to her dreams, she is finally able to slow down, heal, and begin to shine. Her story is a guide to the daily practice of saying yes to your own life's innate wisdom.
"A memoir like no other. You have been preparing to read it all your life. . .This writer is someone who can stand astonished in the presence of both illumination and trouble, someone who can be 'happy as an apple tree in bloom' and also 'translucent with weariness" ––Kim Stafford
Tina Tau is the author of four books of poetry, including The Golden Tree. She is a bookbinder, teacher, dreamworker, mother and artist, and has had more than her share of adventures. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
