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...

I am not a big fan of animal stories because in my experience, most books, even the ones with good intentions and good stories, loose the reader with their over-endearing tone. Read morePublished on October 3, 2012 by Laura
