"Some of the stories Gene Baur tells will break your heart, and other stories will speak to your deepest convictions. It's a book about appalling cruelty and heroic kindness, and it points the way to a better world." - Alicia Silverstone

"Filled with hope, this book is written for all who strive for a more compassionate world. I highly recommend it." - Dr. Jane Goodall

"For years, Farm Sanctuary has been a refuge for cruelly treated animals, rescued from the nightmare world of the factory farm. Now Farm Sanctuary is also a beautiful and stirring book, as filled with the spirit of mercy as the place that inspired it." - Matthew Scully, author of Dominion

"If you want to pretend that agribusiness treats farm animals just like members of their own families, then this book isn't for you. But if you want to live a compassionate life, and want your choices to be congruent with your love, then read Gene Baur's excellent Farm Sanctuary. You'll be a wiser, stronger and healthier person for it." - John Robbins, author Diet For A New America, The Food Revolution, and Healthy At 100

"This book is the most authentic account of the real lives of farm animals, by the St. Francis of our time. There is nobody else in America who could tell the truth about farm animals from such a deep perspective, and at the same time make your heart soar." - Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep and The Pig Who Sang to the Moon

"For both humans and other animals, Farm Sanctuary is as close to the Garden of Eden as we have seen in our lifetimes. Now, with the publication of the book, Farm Sanctuary, we can read the story of what went into the Garden's creation." - Tom Regan, author of Empty Cages: Facing the Challenge of Animal Rights
