Wild at Heart, Volume 1" is a wonderful collection of short stories written by eleven very talented authors to help raise funds for the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. The anthology starts off with a very touching tale by the gifted Elle James/Myla Jackson who conveys a poignant story about a wounded soldier having trouble dealing with reintegration into civilian life and the way he is touched by one of the denizens of the refuge. Most of the stories touch on the way the exotic cats arrive at the sanctuary although some have more fantastical advocates than others (yum, shifters), the difficulty of raising funds to provide an adequate enclosure for the substantial felids or canids or the dedicated people involved with this mission. Rescues involving a few other species, including beached dolphins, a wolf, and other injured wildlife are all imaginatively and enthrallingly conveyed in entertaining stories. Emphasis is placed on the foolishness of adopting an exotic animal without adequate preparation and education and the tragic results that often ensue. An excellent fundraiser that provides fascinating stories, all of which would be excellent springboards for longer tales.
