One at a Time:
A Week in an American Animal Shelter

By Diane Leigh and Marilee Geyer

With compelling photos and moving vignettes, One at a Time chronicles the true stories of 75 dogs and cats who passed through a typical U.S. animal shelter during one week. Each animal has an important lesson to teach and a powerful message to share. Look into their eyes and let them give you a riveting and unforgettable glimpse into this nation's homeless animal tragedy.

"If you love animals, if you love this earth. if you love anything or anybody at all, you'll love One at a Time ... This is a book about love - and the joys and heartbreaks that go with it. It's a book of passion told in stories both wonderful and terrible. Some will leave you in stitches, others in tears, but you will be breathless from cover to cover. Leigh and Geyer have written a wake-up call to us all and it takes courage and compassion to respond. Summon up yours and read this book."

- Jim Mason, author of Animal Factories (with Peter Singer), and Unnatural Order: Why We Are Killing the Planet and Each Other

Thought to Exist in the Wild:
Awakening from the Nightmare of Zoos

Text by Derrick Jensen
Photographs by Karen Tweedy-Holmes

"A zoo is a nightmare taking shape in concrete and steel, iron and glass, moats and electrified fences. It is a nightmare that for its victims has no end save death..."

Combining elegant, stunning photos with a deep and probing essay, Thought to Exist in the Wild presents a critical look at the institution of zoos, the individual animals who live in them, and ultimately, of ourselves.

"Finally, someone has the courage to question zoos. Animals in zoos are not ambassadors teaching us about the natural world, they're unwilling prisoners, teaching us how we as humans seem to need to dominate every living being on the planet. This is a brave book and a much needed voice on behalf of the animals."
- Bill Maher, Host of HBO's “Real Time with Bill Maher”
