Speaking Out for Animals: True Stories About Real People Who Rescue Animals

From the introduction by Jane Goodall

Kim W. Stallwood, in gathering together stories of determination and courage, stories emphasizing the power of individual action, has produced a book that will have an important impact on those who read it. The voices of the animal advocates speak from every page: some quietly, some with resonant shouts, together encouraging all who care about animal suffering to work even harder to effect change.

This anthology is an introduction to our complex relationship with animals seen through the hearts and minds of such heroic and iconic individuals as Paul McCartney, Anita Roddick, Maneka Gandhi, and Jeffrey Masson. There is also “Happy Endings,” which is a heartwarming collection of stories of rescued animals and “Unsung Heroes,” which are profiles of ordinary people doing extraordinary things for animals.

Speaking Out for Animals is published by Lantern Books (2001).
