From the Publisher"In Farm Sanctuary Gene Baur highlights the appalling conditions billions of animals are forced to endure in factory farms — in order to produce more meat more cheaply in the shortest possible time. His descriptions of the courageous battles fought by many individuals to end such practices are touching. Filled with hope, this book is written for all who strive for a more compassionate world — I highly recommend it." — Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace
"Starting in the 1980s, Gene rescued neglected, abused, and injured animals from the appalling, disgusting conditions at auctions and stockyards. Meet in this insightful book the fascinating animals he saved." — Dr. Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation
"I have always admired the tremendous work of Farm Sanctuary. Farm animals need our ethical consideration, and Farm Sanctuary has played a central role in getting the issue of their plight on the national agenda." — Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States
"A beautiful and stirring book, as filled with the spirit of mercy as the place that inspired it." — Matthew Scully, author of Dominion
"Farm animals couldn't ask for a better advocate than Gene Baur." — Rory Freedman, coauthor of Skinny Bitch
"The factory-farming industries do their best to keep people from knowing the truth about how meat, eggs, and dairy are produced. Gene and Farm Sanctuary deserve high praise for working so hard to educate the public and make the world a more compassionate and humane place." — Moby
"Factory farms subvert democracy and are some of the nation's worst polluters. This book shows how they also treat animals with unspeakable cruelty. Farm Sanctuary is a compelling testament to the need to civilize this industry and end its radical practices for producing meat, dairy, and eggs." — Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
