Reviews

"Throughout the book, the passions and sincerity of animal advocates are captured with immense respect...Ultimately, the novel provides insight to the lives of animal activists, and shows the dangers-to activists themselves-of standing up for animals. The narrative also demonstrates the importance of fighting for justice for animals within the bounds of the law in a moving show of compassion for all those who advocate for animals." - Animal Legal Defense Fund

"What's impressive about this novel [is that] it occupies so much literary territory. It is at once a romance, an adventure story, an environmental polemic, and a keen study of just how animalistic humans are...It is a reader's pleasure, due in large part to the meticulous control with which Yunker commands his language." -Phoebe Literary Journal

"This immensely readable and exciting novel brings together the seemingly disjointed lives of characters who share a common thread: whether they know it or not, their purpose is to be devoted to the cause of helping animals...The Tourist Trail is epic, sprawling and strikingly cinematic." -Our Hen House
