Description
Phil, ailing and unemployed, took an orphaned fawn into his trailer and now walks the woods with the devoted stag. "I don't know what I'd do without Li'l Buck," Phil declares simply. "I guess I'd be crazy."

Walt, a retired pipe fitter, says, "Animals...take your heartache away. I lost my boy to drugs and my horse saved my life--just through the therapy of riding."

Don and Lillian devote their time advocating for animal rights and bringing home lost animals. According to Don, "Emotionally, it's an endorphin rush to be with [the animals]. On the metaphysical level, they give us meaning in life."

With these and many other compelling, heartfelt stories, Saved , in the words of Rita Mae Brown, "proves once again that love rescues us all."

display_description Lauded as “an extraordinarily poignant book” by Jim Harrison and called “an homage to the profound power of mutual healing” and a “definitive and compassionate book” by Susan Richards (author of Chosen by a Horse), Saved is a beautifully illustrated tribute to rescued animals who have deeply affected the people who saved them. From Phil, an ailing and unemployed foster dad to an orphaned fawn, to Walt, a retired pipe fitter whose horses helped alleviate his heartache after the death of his son, the stories in Saved, as Rita Mae Brown says, “prove once again that love rescues us all.”
