By No Voice Unheard
Ninety-Five is a delightful and engaging anthology of writing and photography by rescuers, caregivers, and those who love the animals. Each animal is portrayed with high quality, full-color photographs and a short story that demonstrate the animal's personality, depth, emotions, quirks, relationships, and individuality. Some stories are quite dramatic and will leave the reader awed and amazed; while others will simply show who an animal is - from Justice, a steer who broke out of a truck on the way to the slaughterhouse, who now is the self-appointed greeter at his sanctuary, to the quiet happiness of Gilly, a small white hen rescued from a factory egg farm, who found peace in a loving home. Galleries of photos of other farmed animals will also engage the reader, and thumbnail photo footnotes provide additional information.
*Ninety-Five is the average number of animal lives spared annually by one person's vegan diet.
"If the eyes really are the window into the soul,
this book surely has you glimpsing the Beloved. The loveliness and resilience
of these creatures never ceases to humble me."
-- Kathy Freston, Author of Quantum Wellness
"Profoundly evocative and entirely to the point,
Ninety-Five will leave readers forever changed."
-- Rory Freedman, #1 NY Times best selling author, Skinny Bitch
"How amazing it is to learn from this most
extraordinary book just how beautiful chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows and other
farm animals can be. This is a rare and life-changing book. It evokes a sense
of wonder, joy and awe, and a recognition of how interwoven we are with all of
-- John Robbins, author of The New Good Life and Diet For A New America
"One of the most beautiful books I have ever seen, in
every respect: the photographs, the loving stories, the philosophy behind the
stories, the delightful tales, the sheer exuberance of the animals and their
human companions - it is a perfect book! ... Captures something missing from
almost all other books about farmed animals. There is so much heart in this
book, to rival the heart that the animals themselves display."
-- Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep, The Pig Who Sang to the Moon and The Face on Your Plate
"The animal agriculture industry has long treated
farm animals like mere commodities, systematically abusing and killing roughly
10 billion each year in the U.S. But after meeting farm animals face to face,
and opening themselves up to lessons the animals have to share, many people
come to recognize that these beings feel joy, love, fear, pain, and sorrow just
like we do. By bringing animal ambassadors forward through stunning portraits
and inspiring stories, Ninety-Five offers opportunities for positive change and
hope for a more compassionate future.
