About the Book:

 

Blank white book w/path

If Your Tears Were Human: A Collection of Poetry for Animals in Agriculture is an intensely moving and powerful collection of 25 verses written by Heather Leughmyer and paired with striking photographic images from Vanessa Sarges.

Each year, billions of land animals are raised and killed for their meat, eggs, and milk. To the agricultural industry, they are commodities, dollar signs. But to a growing number of people from all walks of life, these precious souls have purpose beyond our palates. They are unique individuals who experience pleasure and pain. They are companions, they are teachers, and they bring beauty and diversity to the planet we all share.

The poems included in this book were inspired by animals, people and events the author encountered in her activism for animals. Although she has been deeply disturbed by the magnitude of human cruelty toward these innocent beings, she has been just as deeply touched by the people who have bravely protested these injustices and who work relentlessly to make this world a kinder place. These are her heroes; the rebels, the bunny-huggers, those with the largest hearts and the softest souls. These poems honor them and the animals they serve.

About the Author:

Heather Leughmyer graduated from Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in English Writing and Linguistics. She is a dedicated vegan, animal rights activist and animal rescuer. Writing has been a passion of hers for as long as she has advocated for animals. By telling their stories and illustrating their pain she hopes to touch a few hearts and change a few minds with her words. She lives in Columbia City, Indiana, with her husband, daughter and several animal companions.

Heather is the author of Adopting Adele, Brave Benny, Courageous Conner, A Rat’s Guide to Owning a Human, If Your Tears Were Human, and co-editor of Rescue Smiles. She is also the founder of Happy Endings Rat Rescue, and a graduate of Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in Writing and Linguistics.

About the Photographer:

Vanessa Sarges wanted to make more of a contribution to Animal Rights, and felt that there was no better way to do so than to document their lives through her photography.

She began bearing witness with Toronto Pig Save and capturing the souls who were being transported to slaughter and the brave activists bearing witness with her.

Although taking those photos is both sad and infuriating, many people have contacted Vanessa to say that her photos were the turning point of their lives and that they were transitioning to a vegan lifestyle as a result.

Vanessa and Heather have been friends for many years and Vanessa has taken great inspiration from their friendship and from Heather’s profound poetry. Vanessa was honoured to be asked to contribute to If Your Tears were Human.

About the Book:

smidgeycover18lo-dropIt was a gorgeous summer day in Central Park, and Smidge and her brother Ridge had time to share one last adventure before it was time to grow up, as Mama Pidgey primly informed them. Yuk, where was the fun in that?!

Smidge slapped Ridge’s wing with hers. “Hey, you hungry? Wanna be real birds, and scavenge the park for seeds, or go see if Mrs. Laney is providing Pidgey Take-Out today?”

Ridge rubbed his belly. “Yum, Mrs. Laney’s for sure! Maybe she put out french fries again,” he grinned mischievously.

The two were so intent on their scramble for treats that when they heard the first squawks of protest, they assumed it was just a squabble over a savory morsel. Soon the cries became louder and more frantic, and more birds joined the chorus.

Finally realizing something wasn’t right, Smidge and Ridge looked up from their breakfast.

But it was too late—a black sack came down over their heads, engulfing them both and turning their world to darkness…

Who was stealing the city’s pigeons, and what’s to become of Smidge, Ridge, and the others? Find out in Smidgey Pidgey’s Predicament, excellent for ages 8 and up, and perfect for humane education in today’s classrooms. Includes Vocab Builders, as well as information about the very real threat to pigeons, and what you can do to help these wonderful birds.

About the Book:

listenercover-loAnna didn’t even know she had an aunt. Aunt Moira had appeared the day after Anna’s parents died in a car crash: a tall grey figure through the screen door, silhouetted against the bright sun. The neighbors welcomed her—they were relieved to get Anna off their hands and into the custody of a relative.

But Anna hadn’t warmed to her aunt or her pug, whose eyes eerily tracked Anna’s every move. Something wasn’t right; her investigation leads to a world she’s never seen and even more relatives who live in a quirky village—a village where singers dance in the sky, the elders are hundreds of years old, and everyone has access to magic.

At first bemused, then charmed, Anna settles in to live with her new-found relations—and unravel the mystery of who is trying to kill her.

The Listener’s Tale is a charming fantasy for young teen readers or the young at heart.

About the Book:

A Kindness to Animals Series Book

By Heather Leughmyer
Illustrated by April Pedersen

courageousconnercover18lo-dropLittle Conner was born on the 3rd day of June, to a proud mama cow, one warm afternoon. His mom gently cleaned him, as a good mother would, then he wiggled and wobbled, until finally he stood.

She gave him soft kisses on his velvety head, then faintly he mooed; Conner now needed fed. He found mama’s milk; it was pleasingly sweet. When his tummy was full, he took a nap at her feet.

But his dreams were cut short by the cries of another; someone was taking a calf from his mother! Conner stayed silent as he cowered in fear; he looked up at his mom as the human drew near…

What will Courageous Conner do now? Will he lose the mother he holds dear? Find out in this lyrical rhyming story from author Heather Leughmyer, part of her Kindness to Animals Series. Perfect for ages 6 and up, and excellent for both humane education and library and family story time.

Heather Leughmyer graduated from Indiana-Purdue University with a B.A. in English Writing and Linguistics. She is a dedicated vegan, animal rights activist and animal rescuer.

Writing has been a passion of hers for as long as she has advocated for animals. By telling their stories and illustrating their pain she hopes to touch a few hearts and change a few minds with her words.

About the Book:

bugmancoverloshadowRichard Fagerlund is now widely known and respected as “The Bugman”, but it wasn’t always that way. In his third book, The Bugman takes us on a compelling journey through his early life, his struggles with alcohol and search to make a meaningful contribution to society, and his ultimate self-discovery along the path to becoming a Board Certified Entomologist (insect expert) and Dipterist (specialist in flies).

He then guides us through the best and least-harmful ways to deal with insects, other arthropods, and vertebrates which are commonly considered pests in our homes and gardens, offering detailed descriptions for over 150 species and ecologically-friendly advice on how to dissuade or remove them from your home or environment.

Richard discusses pesticides, multiple chemical sensitivity, how to find the right pest control company when needed, and bee colony collapse. He both educates and entertains with tales of meeting (and sometimes running from) some of the more formidable members of the animal kingdom: a tiger, a python, an alligator, a king cobra, and other poisonous snakes, including rattlesnakes and copperheads.

Richard “Bugman” Fagerlund has previously published two books and three scientific papers on the subject of bugs, and written a nationally-syndicated column about natural pest control.

According to former presidential candidate Gary Johnson, Richard “leads the way to a better, healthier planet, where pollution from pesticides is limited.”

About the Author:

Richard “Bugman” Fagerlund spent years in the pest management business, and then 11 years working with the University of New Mexico as a pest specialist, an Entomologist (insect expert), and Dipterist (specialist in flies). He is the co-author of “Ask the Bugman” and “The Bugman on Bugs”, as well as the co-author of three scholarly papers during his time with UNM. He wrote weekly natural pest control columns that appeared in many newspapers nationwide, including the San Francisco Chronicle and the Albuquerque Tribune.

When he retired from the University of New Mexico in 2006, Richard went into pest management consulting, and continues to help businesses control pests using least-toxic methods today. He still writes occasional columns for various papers, because he enjoys helping people solve their pest problems without having to use toxic pesticides. He has received hundreds if not thousands of letters from readers across the country.

About the Book:

cold fog in mountain village at nightHow would you spend your time if you died and found yourself in Limbo? Most see Purgatory as a kind of in-between afterlife for people who didn’t rate Heaven and don’t deserve Hell. The author’s Limbo is a ghost town that includes animals that had been killed by humans: a dog, some cats, cows, chickens, and wild creatures, too. The animals are content with their lot in the afterlife, but the humans have an infinity of time on their hands and not enough to do. They think about the big issues, of course: the nature of God, how they screwed up in life, and how they can escape Limbo and get into Heaven.

But no one can spend all their time thinking higher thoughts, so mostly they do what they did in life: they gossip, they get on each other’s nerves, and they play poker.

Darla runs the village politics like a PTA Mom. Emmanuel, who has a wonderful singing voice, most enjoys fellowship with the cows. The Preacher, still in his hospital gown, gathers a congregation and makes it up as he goes along. Warren, a former college professor, seeks something to study in a bookless afterlife. You’ll meet The Naked Man, Lily, Traveling Jack, The Chinese Lady, and Trey, a quadriplegic who is freer in death than he was in life. Seventeen-year-old Alyse, the newest person to join the village, decides to bring everyone together by throwing the Limbo equivalent of a neighborhood block party.

If you like Ghost-Lite stories, you’ll love Limbo…you’ll laugh, cry, and ponder what comes next in the great beyond.

“Wraps its ghost arms around you and seeps into your soul.”—Tamira Thayne, author of The Wrath of Dog, The King’s Tether

About the Book:

aboutadogcover-loOliver the Owl isn’t used to caring about dogs. To Oliver’s way of thinking, dogs can’t be trusted. They eat birds, after all.

But then a black dog—with some white spots—ends up living under the tree he calls home; Oliver discovers he can’t ignore, can’t forget, and can’t fly away from the plight of his fellow being. Will the neglected and chained black dog ever receive the happy ending Oliver believes he deserves?

Oliver narrates the dog’s tale from a new and unique perspective; his viewpoint is sure to touch the hearts of all who read It’s About a Dog.

About the Author:

Over the past 20 years, Maggie Couch has fostered more than 100 homeless dogs, in Connecticut and in Colorado. She has loved every one of them, and carries them in her heart always. An animal rights activist, Maggie has participated in demonstrations against circuses, zoos, dog racing, marine life “entertainment,” puppy mills and stores, cat declawing, dog tethering, and other horrific practices which hurt our trusting, loyal and loving friends. She hopes that someday very soon there will be no dogs in this world who wait for love in lonely desperation, as did the dog in this story. She hopes that, instead, all dogs will be cherished, protected, and loved, also as was the dog in the story. She lives in Colorado with her two elderly adopted dogs and a neighborhood stray cat who adopted them all and rules their happy home.
