5.0 out of 5 stars Heart Wrenching and Heart Lifting, September 18, 2006
This review is from: Making Burros Fly: Cleveland Amory, Animal Rescue Pioneer (Paperback)
When MAKING BURROS FLY, (the gift of a thoughtful young friend) arrived I stopped everything and read it through from start to finish. Isn't it wonderful to know about someone like Cleveland Amory who felt so passionately and was willing to put his life and resources on the line to correct obvious wrongs? I must say cruelty to animals - organised cruelty - was never something in the forefront of my mind. For instance, I would never have dreamed of deliberately starving dogs to see how long they could last without food or water. That sounds just plain SICK and not scientific. So - I read about things I'd never known about and I read with sorrow and despair. However, the book left me with a feeling of hope and upliift and optimism for the future. The author did an amazing job of collecting, collating and relating her material. There was so much information in the book, but she did not write dry statistics, she built suspense throughout and painted a realistic and attractive picture of her subject. Some of her descriptive writing was poetic and beautiful. This is a book all animal lovers should read. Others should read it, too - it might make animal lovers out of them!
