Written in a highly engaging style, this book challenges the field, dealing with some highly controversial aspects of animal exploitation and boldly examines material that is seldom discussed within animal studies.

An inspiring and moving memoir of the author's turbulent life with 600 rescue animals. Laurie Zaleski never aspired to run an animal rescue; that was her mother Annie’s dream. But from girlhood, Laurie was determined to make the dream come true. Thirty years later as a successful businesswoman, she did it, buying a 15-acre farm deep in the Pinelands of South Jersey. She was planning to relocate Annie and her caravan of ragtag rescues—horses and goats, dogs and cats, chickens and pigs—when Annie died, just two weeks before moving day. In her heartbreak, Laurie resolved to make her mother's dream her own. In 2001, she established the Funny Farm Animal Rescue outside Mays Landing, New Jersey. Today, she carries on Annie’s mission to save abused and neglected animals. Funny Farm is Laurie’s story: of promises kept, dreams fulfilled, and animals lost and found. It’s the story of Annie McNulty, who fled a nightmarish marriage with few skills, no money and no resources, dragging three kids behind her, and accumulating hundreds of cast-off animals on the way. And lastly, it's the story of the brave, incredible, and adorable animals that were rescued. Although there are some sad parts (as life always is), there are lots of laughs.

Since ancient times, stories have abounded concerning the existence of ghost animals. From the Native American animal spirits, to the menacing demon dogs of medieval England, to present day encounters with animal apparitions, there can be little doubt that animals, like people, live after death and pass back and forth between this world and the next. In the realm of the paranormal, experiences concerning deceased pets who revisit the living are common events. Like the ghosts of humans, pet ghosts return for various reasons. Sometimes they appear to say goodbye. Sometimes they want to reassure their grieving owners that they are all right, and that their spirits are always with them. And sometimes, as they often did in life, they are guarding their beloved humans, delivering a message or a warning. "Haunted Pets" covers a wide range of encounters with animal ghosts. Some of these encounters are comforting; others are terrifying. In general, when pets return in ghostly form, they provide comfort and protection to the living. But there are other less benign phantom creatures who have been known to haunt places of violence, or exact revenge upon humans for evil deeds which, while long past, have somehow evaded justice.

In this compelling book, storyteller extraordinaire Matthew Dicks presents wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing stories that will hold the attention of your audience (no matter how big or small). He shows that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller, that everyone has something “storyworthy” to express, and, perhaps most important, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing your own life.

Life, for Ronnie Sinclair, is not as idyllic as it might be in the quirkily wonderful Oklahoma setting that serves as his home. Sure, he’s got a fantastic family, which marvelously expands thanks to his evolving relationships with a bunch of fascinating people. He lives in a sprawling ranch house nestled inside fifteen acres of natural wonder, with adventures awaiting at every turn. And the Arbuckle Wilderness Preserve is in his backyard, which is amazing because it positively explodes with opportunities for communion with the animal pals he so adores. But there is trouble in Ronnie’s life, too, and it’s starting to feel like more than just the garden-variety kind of trouble a twelve-year-old boy might expect to run up against. Ronnie is a subject of intense interest for a few neighborhood bullies whose plans for him grow increasingly nefarious as time goes on. In short order, he finds himself the central figure in a national terror plot that threatens not only him and his family, but the country at large. At last, Ronnie draws strength for facing his ordeals from his faith, from his family, and from an enormously affectionate pet skunk who recognized his special qualities from the start. In the end, the lot of them learn a universal lesson about the meaning of love—particularly when it’s applied to folks you were convinced were your enemies all along.
