Delve Deeper Into the Animal Rights Revolution and Read Free the Animals

Free the Animals takes a deep dive into the history you never knew of the animal rights movement.

Full of fascinating characters, vivid descriptions, thrilling incidents, and a glimpse at what it means to live on the run from the law, Free the Animals is not only a classic for our time but also a compelling examination of our society’s cruelty to other animals in the name of science.
