People who knew Cleveland Amory say it would be impossible to forget him and his compassion for animals. He is the loveable old curmudgeon, the author of The Cat Who Came for Christmas, a man who evolved from writer to animal crusader. Amory also created the Fund for Animals, an aggressive animal rights organization. This book chronicles Amory's amazing Army of the Kind--airlifting 500 burros set to be slaughtered from the depths of the Grand Canyon, saving pigeons and rabbits, stalking hunters, shooing buffalo. Along the way, he created sanctuaries for animals to save them from abuse and neglect, establishing a network of foot soldiers for his Army. The Fund never grew to the size of an organization like PETA, but it was an irritating presence to anybody who tried to hurt animals. The story of the Fund relates how far we've come, explores how far we need to go, and shows the type of personality needed to head the next generation of animal rights activists.
