Product description

Review

"Throughout the book, the passions and sincerity of animal advocates are captured with immense respect...Ultimately, the novel provides insight to the lives of animal activists, and shows the dangers-to activists themselves-of standing up for animals. The narrative also demonstrates the importance of fighting for justice for animals within the bounds of the law in a moving show of compassion for all those who advocate for animals." - Animal Legal Defense Fund

"What's impressive about this novel [is that] it occupies so much literary territory. It is at once a romance, an adventure story, an environmental polemic, and a keen study of just how animalistic humans are...It is a reader's pleasure, due in large part to the meticulous control with which Yunker commands his language." -Phoebe Literary Journal

"This immensely readable and exciting novel brings together the seemingly disjointed lives of characters who share a common thread: whether they know it or not, their purpose is to be devoted to the cause of helping animals...The Tourist Trail is epic, sprawling and strikingly cinematic." -Our Hen House
