Description

The founder of a peaceful haven for needy farm animals shares "enjoyable stories about her menagerie" and makes a powerful argument for vegan living (Publishers Weekly). Picking up where she left off in Where the Blind Horse Sings, Kathy Stevens regales us with more tales of the rescued animals at Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS)—some touching, some hilarious, all provocative. We meet Barbie, the broiler hen found hiding under a blue Honda in Brooklyn who falls for the animal ambassador Rambo, a ram with an uncanny sense of what others need. Then there's Norma Rae, the turkey rescued from a "turkey bowl" just before Thanksgiving. There's also Noah, a twenty-one-year-old stallion, starved and locked in a dark stall for his entire life until he came to CAS. Claude, the giant pink free-range pig, is but another of the "underfoot family," those who roam the barnyard, free and with dignity, interacting with their own and other species in startling and profound ways. The love Stevens has for these animals, and the amount of love they give her in return, is stunning and will make any reader more thoughtful of how we treat animals in this country. Pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys, horses, goats, sheep, and more, march into CAS and into our hearts as we learn about their personalities and what makes us human.
