Free Farm Sanctuary Book Download - Today Only

I just got an e-mail about this and thought I'd pass it on. To celebrate his book's paperback release, Gene Baur is offering a free e-book version of his book, Farm Sanctuary - Changing Hearts and Minds about Animals and Food - but you have to act fast, it's only free today. You'll need to download the Sony eBook library software and set up an account, but it's super quick and easy. Here's a blurb about the book -
Leading animal rights activist Gene Baur examines the real cost of the meat on our plates -- for both humans and animals alike -- in this provocative and thorough examination of the modern farm industry. Many people picture cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens as friendly creatures who live happily within the confines of a peaceful family farm, arriving as food for humans only at the end of their sun-drenched lives. That's what Gene Baur had been told -- but when he first visited a stockyard he realized that this rosy depiction couldn't be more inaccurate. Amid the stench, noise, and filth, his attention was drawn in particular to one sheep who had been cast aside for dead. But as Baur walked by, the sheep raised her head and looked right at him. She was still alive, and the one thing Baur knew for sure that day was that he had to get her to safety. Hilda, as she was later named, was nursed back to health and soon became the first resident of Farm Sanctuary -- an organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and protection of farm animals.
