From the Publisher"In Greenwald's narrative, Amory's personal evolution--from chronicler of the silly and inconsequential pursuits of the rich to the nation's most recognizable animal advocate of the 1970s--is rendered intelligible as the natural course of progression in a thoughtful and engaged individual's life. This is the true strength of her work, the thing that distinguishes it from the obituaries and tributes that accumulated immediately following Amory's death. . . . This account of the man who wanted to arm bears, recruit an army of the kind, and build a Ranch of Dreams adds greatly to our understanding of his singular contributions to a cause that he championed with passion and the full measure of his days."
--Humane Society of the United States Newsletter
"Amory supplies plenty of material for a robust biography, and Greenwald does a thoroughly creditable job of it. . . . A man of many parts, Amory may very well be remembered less for his journalism than for his activities on behalf of animals. As an idealist, that may be just as he would prefer."--Ohioana Quarterly
"Amory's publicly meditated life is grounded by friends and personal experience as he transforms the social elite's noblesse oblige of a bygone era into an impassioned modern American activism. Focusing her biography on how he used media commentary to give voice to the voiceless, Greenwald relates the journey of this scion-turned-celebrity as a heroic tale for the Internet age of wandering opinion."--Journalism History
