Product description

Review

This book is a superb tribute to Dorothy Brooke and her belief that such a charitable venture would form 'a fitting part of a War Memorial.'...Utterly compelling. -- Joanna Lumley This lovingly researched, evocative biography of Dorothy Brooke proves her a heroine not just to the battered and beaten old warhorses she saved in 1930s Cairo but to those who continue her legacy today. -- Susanna Forrest, author of THE AGE OF THE HORSE A tribute to a courageous woman who worked to reduce suffering. -- Temple Grandin, author of ANIMALS MAKE US HUMAN A galloping tale of the intertwined histories of the last days of the British Empire in Egypt, the politics of human-animal relationships and an organisation whose work continues to this day. -- Alan Mikhail, professor of history at Yale University and author of THE ANIMAL IN OTTOMAN EGYPT A story of deep connection, compassion, empathy and love. Thanks to the author for making Dorothy Brooke visible and for taking the time to tell us about a most amazing and compassionate woman. -- Marc Bekoff, author of THE ANIMALS' AGENDA
