Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food
by Gene Baur, 2008
While at my local library one sunny afternoon, by chance I happened upon this title, propped up on a book display. The jacket was very appealing and I was immediately interested in it's content. And it did not disappoint!
Farm Sanctuary is one of the most gently written vegan books I've ever read. I have yet to encounter a piece of literature which introduced me so personally to farm animals, not as some sort of collective, but for the individual souls that they are. I especially appreciated how the author describes the plight of farmed animals, not only from an empathetic perspective, but from a legal point of view as well.
Your heart will swell as you discover for yourself Gene's selfless story and that of his rescued animal friends-- their courage, their forgiveness, and their peaceful persistence. In short, I love this book! I can't wait to read it again!
