It was the pitiful sight of a petting-zoo refugee goat that set Ellie Laks on a path of good deeds that eventually became a lifetime calling. In the decade and a half since that first adoption, her sanctuary The Gentle Barn has become the home of hundreds of animals that have been stranded, abandoned, or abused. Her book My Gentle Barn is not only her personal memoir, but also a hands-on guide to performing similar worthy deeds ourselves. It serves, just as importantly, as a testament to a healing power that caregivers can experience.
