The Inner World of Farm Animals; Their Amazing Social, Emotional and Intellectual Capacities
Forward, Jane Goodall. Afterword, Wayne Pacelle, President, The Humane Society of the United States.

This book combines the latest research on the social, emotional and intellectual capacities of farm animals with touching – and often surprising – stories to bring their inner world to life. Soulful photos of cows, goats, lambs, and other barnyard animals complement the text, and add to the belief that these creatures deserve our attention.
