Free the Animals: The Amazing True Story of the Animal Liberation Front
This is the true story of how the animal liberation underground started in the US. Every character - including each of the wonderful animals you will come to know - is real flesh and blood. Because the federal government retains an abiding interest in locking up anyone involved in illegally removing animals from those who legally exploit them, it has convened grand juries to investigate the often daring and successful raids you will read about. Understanding how some quite 'ordinary' people came to break the law may very well change your life.

A must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what motivates animal rights activists—particularly those who engage in direct action—to devote their lives to saving animals. Through engagingly written stories of daring rescues, Free the Animals helps us see that the animals who are abused and killed on fur farms, in laboratories, and in the meat industry are unique individuals who feel pain and value their lives. Even the most hardened meat-eater or fur-wearer would be challenged to walk away from reading this book without a bit more compassion for our fellow earthlings—as well as the brave people who are working to save them.
