There is a wonderful bronze statue in Hyden of her; perhaps you have seen the statue. We ordered your book on Kindle, and have also ordered a hard copy that we will take to Red Bird, to show the children, and donate the book to the school library. By the way, we have met you twice…once in Kentucky at a festival with Bev Poyer, and the second time at the Memphis Quartet Show last year.

I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now and always enjoy it.

Harry and Meghan's royal baby: What we know, what we don't know, and why

She was a good friend and loved your books too. By the way I have met some ladies at Red Bird who had worked with this program in the horseback years.

Great to hear from you, Sharon. So sorry to hear that. She was a good reading friend. Am I right that your husband was the one who sang an Elvis song in German for us in Memphis? Interesting about your work with the Red Bird Christian School too. I did go to Wendover while I was researching for the book, but I missed seeing that statue and I had no idea they had a parade for Mary Breckinridge. I should try to go to that and see that statue too.

I have, of course, seen pictures. Thanks for sharing with me and sharing my book too. I imagined and could see in the eyes of the mothers a thought that their baby was a little bit like an alien that they could never learn the language to connect with and how ever could they even just make sure their infant got nourishment to survive.

I adored working with them and felt honored to be in the presence of the spirit of newness and preciousness. To do all of that with a horse and a dog would only have increased the total pleasure of this job. So yes, I would love to hear more stories from you Ann. With warm regards, Karen in NC. Thanks for telling me about your nursing background with babies. The breakfast with you was wonderful. I came home and started reading your book. I am really engrossed. I love these kind of books with some of our great history included. You are a genius with words dear Ann. Thanks for everything, your the best.

Will let you know soon about my book review. Have a great week and I hope your doggie is going to feel better soon. Aharoni thought it to be the aurochs, ancestor to all domesticated cows. This interpretation, like many others, seems to have stuck. But the Hebrew names of animals were not his only enduring legacy.

He also captured a poorly known wild animal and in doing so changed our modern lives.

In the spring of , Aharoni staged an expedition to the hills of Syria, near Aleppo, one of the oldest cities in the world. But there was another motive. The trip was full of challenges, among the most fundamental of which was Aharoni himself. While good at naming species, he was not good at traveling.

He must have worried about transportation, about the weather and, above all, about being the least bit uncomfortable. And yet he was so curious—so full of a need to discover new things—that he pushed on. He had seen Mr. Saddlebags before and would lead Aharoni to where it might be found again. But he obliged, one house at a time, day after day, in the quest for the animal with the silly name. On April 12, , fortune struck.

Through a series of conversations, the men found a farm where the animal had been seen. They dug eight feet down. Then from the dust of the earth they found a nest and in it, the animals. They were golden, furry and tiny— Mr. Aharoni had found a mother and her pups, ten soft and young.

Aharoni removed the animals from the farm and gave them the Hebrew name, oger. We now know them, in English, as the Syrian hamster or, because it is now the most common hamster in the world, simply the hamster. Today, Syrian hamsters are nearly everywhere. A precise count is impossible. They are in classrooms, bedrooms and, as Aharoni envisioned, research labs. They scurry under refrigerators. They log thousands of collective miles on hamster wheels. The Syrian hamsters Aharoni collected were the first to be studied in any great detail.

But he wanted to do more than study them; he wanted to breed them so that hamsters could be used as laboratory animals. Another species of hamster was already being used for research in China, but they would not reproduce in captivity and so had to be collected again and again. Aharoni thought he would be luckier with the Syrian hamster, though just why he was so optimistic is unknown. Aharoni took the hamsters back to his lab in Jerusalem.

Or at least he took some of them. In the wheat field, the mother, upon being placed in a box, began to eat her babies. In retrospect, killing the mother may have been imprudent because it left the infants alone, too small to feed themselves. Aharoni began with 11 hamsters, and just 9 made it back to Jerusalem, each of them defenseless.

Their eyes were still closed. The babies, fed with an eye-dropper, did well for a while, maybe too well.

Samson and Delilah

One night, when the mood around the lab had grown hopeful, five hamsters grew bold, chewed their way out of their wooden cage and were never found. Four hamsters remained.
