'Sy Montgomery, The Good Good Pig Founder Ellie Laks started The Gentle Barn after adopting a sick goat from a run-down petting zoo in 1999. Some two hundred animals later (including chickens, horses, pigs, cows, rabbits, emus, and more), The Gentle Barn has become an extraordinary nonprofit that brings together a volunteer staff of community members and at-risk teens to rehabilitate abandoned and/or abused animals. As Ellie teaches the volunteers to care for the animals, they learn a new language of healing that works wonders on the humans as well. The Gentle Barn weaves together the story of how the Barn came to be what it is today with Ellie's own journey.

Calling all animal lovers and those who are not.

This book cronicles the dream of one very special lady whose love for animals all great and small goes beyond what most of us could not even apprehend.

Ellie Laks tells her own story of growing up in a family that did not understand or support her love and devotion towards animals.

She had a dream to one day be able to rescue, care and provide a safe and loving home for abused, abandoned or neglected animals.

Her dream is eventually realized with "My Gentle Barn", a sanctuary where animals heal and troubled children see first hand that a little love and understanding can change their lives for ever.

Truly a wonderful story, well told and full of love and compassion.
