Share Mariah with your Child or Grandchild.

Mariah is a compelling true story about an orphaned filly, written through the eyes of the filly herself.

Even though Mariah never received the important first milk all young animals require to live, she thrived with the nurturing given to her by her adopted family.

This story reveals the difficulty Mariah suffers from being rejected by the other horses and ranch animals and how she developed into a healthy, energetic young filly.

You'll enjoy reading about all the  adventures Mariah has on the ranch, as well as being introduced to  many amazing new experiences in the life of an orphaned foal.

Arlene E. Turk

   Arlene E. Turk was born on January 9, 1938, in Renton, Washington. She is the daughter of a brick layer and a homemaker.

   Her extraordinary love for horses drove her to work odd jobs, enabling her to save up enough money to buy her first horse, Sheiba, at the age of 13.

   In 1967 she married her husband, Henry, a Montana native, and they moved back to Montana. Together they raised 6 children and have 10 grandchildren.

   After living with and loving animals her entire life and driving a school bus in the harsh conditions of Central Montana, she realized that she should write a book for all of the children.

This book is about the wonderful experiences of raising an orphaned foal, a gift from Mother Nature.

   This charming book will be enjoyed by all ages, telling of the many situations that the filly named, Mariah, manages to survive.
