Named one of the 10 best vegan books of 2011 by VegNews!
Join us as we visit sanctuaries and homes across the country to discover the animals most of us never have a chance to meet – America’s farmed animals.
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…
