A Book-of-the-Month Club, Quality Paperback Book Club, and One Spirit Selection. "The day we met [Cuny] was feeding five beautiful yearlings intravenously, who surely would have died from dehydration, while she simultaneously supervised the feeding of skunks, possums, squirrels-you name it. She is selfless and dauntless in her battle to rescue and rehabilitate animals. I feel privileged to know her and serve on her board. There are few better qualified to look through the eyes of an animal. It is a beautiful, touching book." Loretta Swit, actress "Heartwarming tales of rescued creatures are presented in this collection of vignettes from a large wildlife rehabilitation center . . . Cuny's love for her charges shines through in her stories." -- Booklist "Her brief stories are often touching, such as when she describes a young raccoon, rescued from a fire, self-medicating its burned paws with aloe vera plants; or two crab-eating macaques, confined inside a research facility for eighteen years, experiencing the outdoors for the first time." -- Natural History "This book deserves a spot on every library shelf along with such nonfiction animal story classics as Adamson's Born Free, North's Rascal, and the work of Jane Goodall . . . Cuny's achievement is in her ability to present the animals' experiences in a factual, sympathetic, but unsentimental tone."-- Appraisal: Science Books for Young People Lynn's stories from Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation (WRR) range from the humorous to the tragic, from the surprising to the inevitable. The animals she describes range from the day-old field mouse to the three-legged coyote; from a fox-loving hen to the exotic and abused mountain lions, macaque monkeys and black bears. Always, she reveals the dignity of each animal, trying to survive in a world made cruel and dangerous by the thoughtlessness of humans.
