Editorial Reviews

Review

"If the eyes really are the window into the soul, this book surely has you glimpsing the Beloved. The loveliness and resilience of these creatures never ceases to humble me." --Endorsement from Kathy Freston, Author of Quantum Wellness

"Profoundly evocative and entirely to the point, Ninety-Five will leave readers forever changed." --Endorsement from Rory Freedman, #1 NY Times best selling author, Skinny Bitch

How amazing it is to learn from this most extraordinary book just how beautiful chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and other farm animals can be. This is a rare and life-changing book. It evokes a sense of wonder, joy and awe, and a recognition of how interwoven we are with all of life. --John Robbins, author of The New Good Life and Diet For A New America

One of the most beautiful books I have ever seen, in every respect: the photographs, the loving stories, the philosophy behind the stories, the delightful tales, the sheer exuberance of the animals and their human companions - it is a perfect book! ... Captures something missing from almost all other books about farmed animals. There is so much heart in this book, to rival the heart that the animals themselves display. --Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon and The Face on Your Plate

The animal agriculture industry has long treated farm animals like mere commodities, systematically abusing and killing roughly 10 billion each year in the U.S. But after meeting farm animals face to face, and opening themselves up to lessons the animals have to share, many people come to recognize that these beings feel joy, love, fear, pain, and sorrow just like we do. By bringing animal ambassadors forward through stunning portraits and inspiring stories, Ninety-Five offers opportunities for positive change and hope for a more compassionate future. (Gene Baur, President & Co-founder of Farm Sanctuary and Author of the National Best-seller Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food )

From the Inside Flap

Join us as we visit sanctuaries and homes across the country to discover the animals most of us never have a chance to meet - America's farmed animals.

This collection of stories and photographs by rescuers, caregivers and animal lovers will show you a side of these animals you may not have thought possible. Far from the unthinking, unfeeling beings they are often portrayed as, the animals in Ninety-Five* reveal themselves to be as distinctive as the dogs and cats with whom many of us share our homes: complex creatures with remarkable personalities, depth, emotions, quirks, relationships and individuality.

From Justice, the steer who broke out of a truck on the way to the slaughterhouse and who is now the self-appointed "greeter" at his sanctuary, to Gilly, a small white hen rescued from a factory egg farm who found quiet happiness in a loving home, each animal has a compelling story that will captivate. Beautiful photos complement, allowing us the chance to get up close and personal, and to look into their eyes - the "windows of the soul" - and see the extraordinary spark of life they hold.

Some of the animals will make you chuckle, others will move you, some may bring tears to your eyes, and some will just give you something to think about. All of them are fascinating. Come with us on a journey to meet them...

* Ninety-five is the average number of animals spared annually by one person's vegan diet.

Such a wonderful way to show the individual personalities in the usually-anonymous animals people thoughtlessly eat everyday.

This is so much more than a coffee table book - this is a book worth reading and passing on.

Review by Karen Davis, PhD

Ninety-five is the figure that is often cited as the number of animals who are saved each year by one person's vegan diet. A droplet from the vast sea of creatures subjected to every conceivable cruelty and degradation in order to satisfy the human desire for their eggs, flesh, and nursing mother's milk. For most people these animals are as invisible as microbes in a pond. Yet each animal buried alive in the sewage systems of animal agriculture is an individual with emotions, a personality and a will to live that is as passionate as our own. If only people could meet these animals, surely they will stop eating them.

One way for this to happen is by visiting a farmed animal sanctuary. Another is for America's sanctuary animals to be brought to you through stories and photographs filled with the passion, beauty, love and tears of those who know them best. Ninety-Five provides a lyrical look at a group of individual chickens, turkeys, cows, pigs, rabbits, goats, ducks and other farmed animals - including a live-market crab named Jean - who escaped being dead on a plate. It's an honor for United Poultry Concerns to be one of the sanctuaries chosen for this rich, expressive and compelling book through the magnificent photography of Davida Breier. Through the lens of empathic, talented and insightful writers, sanctuary caregivers, and photographers, Ninety-Five lets the animals be their own best witnesses to the truth of their lives.

Format: Paperback
I received my copy and have been mesmerized by these beautiful souls and their heart-tugging stories. I am deeply touched. Their stories have not failed to make me cry, laugh, smile and break my heart, but, mostly it has fueled further my desire to help these souls at every turn I can. The photographs of the animals are stunning. This book is not meant to sit on a bookshelf when you are finished reading it. This is a book that needs, that must be shared. Purchase extras for gifts. I did.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca B. Clark on August 3, 2010
Format: Paperback
This delightful book offers a window into the magical world of farm animal rescue. Vivid photographs and charming stories give voice to a number of lucky pigs, chickens, turkeys, goats, and cows that have been rescued from the agricultural food chain. I was utterly charmed by images of still-sassy debeaked chickens like Francine and Goldie; blissful smiles on the faces of pigs like Rosie and Ronnie ("they didn't turn us into bacon!"); and the baleful eyes of dozens of rescued goats and cows lucky enough to live out their lives (often made painful and short by feeding and breeding techniques)in grassy fields and sunny barnyards.

The authors and photographers who created this gem of a book seemed to know that they didn't need to lecture or preach. Because nothing could be more persuasive than the faces of these fortunate animals.

Format: Paperback
Everyday we're impacted by them, but think nothing of them. "Ninety-Five: Meeting America's Farmed Animals in Stories and Photographs" tells the story of the livestock, as many farmers and writers put their pen down to tell the story of many animals whose stories people often think nothing of. With full color photography, No Voice Unheard puts together a fascinating read and beautiful to look at volume that should be a top pick for fans of animal collections focusing on farm animals and livestock.

Such a wonderful way to show the individual personalities in the usually-anonymous animals people thoughtlessly eat everyday. God bless Justice, Olivia, Benjamin and all the other ambassadors in this book, and all the caring people at the sanctuaries where they live.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sheri E. Barnes on February 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
Ninety-Five, which is named for a frequently cited estimate that one person's vegan lifestyle saves 95 animals per year, is one of the best, most beautiful books I have read for a long time. It tells the story, in a very personal way, of rescued farmed animals. The photography is amazing. The combination of those two factors makes the book a powerful tool for animal advocacy. Anyone wishing to make informed choices should be aware of the horrific treatment of farmed animals. This book provides a glimpse into those issues, without being so overwhelming that it is painful, like so much of the information about animal mistreatment often is. It touches the heart from both directions--the tragedy going on every day in our world and the incredible beauty and individuality of farmed animals. I will treasure this book and will look for opportunities to give it as gifts.

Beautifully and compassionately written, this is a book for family education regarding the food we eat, where it comes from and what it takes to get to your table. The book does not preach...it educates. It gives you the knowledge to make your own choices.

Absolutely amazing and beautiful book.Love love love it. I cried both happy and sad, disgusted tears. Solidified my decision to undertake a vegan lifestyle. Re-affirmed too that there are caring people out there and that animals are more insightful and 'real' than we realize.
