Kathy Stevens' 'Animal Camp': Meet the author and her menagerie. Rams, pigs and horses at the Catskill Animal Sanctuary offer 'Lessons in Love and Hope from Rescued Farm Animals. I half expect him to greet me - this is, after all, a place of transformation, described so poignantly in Stevens’ new book Animal Camp: Lessons in Love and Hope from Rescued Farm Animals, a place where abused and abandoned horses, sheep, pigs and cows are often miraculously healed both physically and emotionally. But as I move closer, the ram hobbles away. Clearly, I lack that magical connection to animals that seems so effortless for Stevens.

Heartwarming stories of rescued farm animals from the author of Where the Blind Horse Sings. Picking up where she left off in Where the Blind Horse Sings, Kathy Stevens regales us with more tales of the rescued animals at Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS), some touching, some hilarious, all provocative. Then there's Norma Rae, the turkey rescued from a "turkey bowl" just before Thanksgiving.

Picking up where she left off in Where the Blind Horse Sings, Kathy Stevens regales us with more tales of the rescued animals at Catskill Animal Sanctuary (CAS), some touching, some hilarious, all provocative. We meet Barbie, the broiler hen found hiding under a blue Honda in Brooklyn who falls for the animal ambassador Rambo, a ram with an uncanny sense of what others need. Then there’s Norma Rae, the turkey rescued from a “turkey bowl” just before Thanksgiving. There’s also Noah, a twenty-one-year-old stallion, starved and locked in a dark stall for his entire life until he came to the safety and plenty of CAS. Claude, the giant pink free-range pig, is but another of the “underfoot family,” those who roam the barnyard, free and with dignity, interacting with their own and other species in startling and profound ways. The love Stevens has for these animals, and the amount of love they give her in return, is stunning and will make any reader more thoughtful of how we treat a whole class of animals in this country. Pigs, cows, chickens, turkeys, horses, goats, sheep, and more, march into CAS and into our hearts as we learn about their quirks and personalities and what makes us human.

I read this book after reading Where The Blind Horse Sings, which I totally loved. I was a little disappointed with this book because the author spent so much time talking about how cruel the animal production for food industry is. I know where she is coming from, I feel the same way too, but I hate seeing through her eyes the cruel treatment over and over again. For the same reason that I turn the tv off when the ASPCA commercials with the pathetic dogs come on because they make me cry. I love animals, I have 10 animals, but I just can't deal with that in your face sadness. I think a little less of that and a little more of the precious stories about the wonderful animals would have the same results. When you read about the loving and adorable farm animals like Rambo, Franklin, Paulie, Lumpy and all the rest, nobody in their right mind would look at mc nuggets, bacon, and hamburgers in the same way again. But I applaud Kathy Stevens for the wonderful work she is doing, and want her to know that she IS making a difference.

This is the second book I have read by this author. She has a sanctuary for animals who have been abused. She takes in almost any animal not just dogs and cats. I really like the way she recognizes each one for the individual personality and how she gets most of the animals to trust humans again. The author is a vegan and promotes that throughout the book along with recipes and resources to study more about the subject.

Great story-so loving and also honest. Farmwork is darn hard and most people don't have a clue as to the energy, time, money, and strength of commitment and character it takes to keep going every day! NO DAYS OFF!

The rescue stories were wonderful and I too believe that animals suffer and surely they do in the factory farming methods used today. But I buy my meat and eggs locally and know how those animals and birds are treated...so I did not appreciate the constant guilt inducing reminders to become a vegan.

It was satisfying to hear more about the growth and inner-workings of the animal sanctuary. This book, however, focused far too much on preaching the vegan lifestyle and less on the heartwarming work that gets done there. I'm vegan, so you're preaching to the choir here but I thought it was too lecturing and not as inspiring. I'm glad I read the first book first or I would not have read it after having read this one. And that's sad because I think there is such a good story - and message - to be told.

If you love animals, this is an excellent book for you.

I won't say that this is the best piece of literature I've ever read but after reading Kathy Stevens' first book, Where the Blind Horse Sings I knew I wanted to read this follow up book. I was so moved afterwards that I went to stay overnight at the sanctuary's newly renovated farm house which dates back from the 1700's and has been turned into a bed and breakfast. Meeting the animals in person was incredibly moving. The animal sanctuary is such a happy and beautiful place shining a light on the good! We also took a vegan cooking class at the B&B while there which felt like a way to respect the loving creatures that they care for. Five stars for the topic!
"Animal Camp" is the follow-up to Kathy Stevens' first book, "Where the Blind Horse Sings: Love and Healing at an Animal Sanctuary". I recommend both books to any animal lover - and to those who are interested in learning about the deep lives animals lead. You will read more stories that illuminate just how much animals are like us humans (who are also animals). The book is basically split up into two parts: the first part is about Kathy taking three of the CAS (Catskill Animal Sanctuary) animals to a special "summer camp", where they will all learn something about themselves. Each animal has had their own "difficulties" at CAS, so the summer camp is an opportunity for them to grow in a more dedicated environment. The second half of the book is about their return to CAS, and also more stories about the wonderful animals CAS has provided not only a home for, but a rich and rewarding life.

What Kathy Stevens has created in CAS is nothing short of amazing. I find it hard to believe anyone could read her books and not have a fundamental change in how they view animals, specifically farm animals which we Americans take completely for granted. Her books have changed me and hopefully will do the same for others.
