Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Endorsement from Kathy Freston
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.
Endorsement from Rory Freedman
Profoundly evocative and entirely to the point, Ninety-Five will leave readers forever changed.
John Robbins
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 life.
Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson
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.
Gene Baur
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.
