Fine 1st edition hard cover in near fine dust wrapper. Brown cloth boards with bright gilt titles. White background dj in new mylar shows very light soil on rear panel and a half inch barely perceptible closed tear at the head of the frt panel. No names, tears or soil in the 90 pp text. "Souvenir" means "to remember" in French. It also carries the anglicized definition of "something that serves as a reminder - a memento," and thus seemed a doubly apt title. The second portion, which actually came first, gives you the actual phrases and thoughts that Ms. Kado-oka so diligently recorded over the course of many years of Barbier clinics. The first part takes these and weaves them into narrative form, occasionally with the editorial license, overseen by Dominique and Debra. Interspersed, the photos, the illustrations, and even the cartoon, represent vivid testimony to a lifetime of dedication to teaching and learning about and from horses. And so you can have a combination: the lyrical and the mystical, the essence and substance. This book is as complicated, and as simple as Barbier himself.
