Mercy: The Incredible true Story

Very interesting account of Henry Bergh who was the founder of the ASPCA.  What I like more than some nonfiction I have read recently is that this has pretty wide appeal - animals and it is on the shorter side.  For my work especially with MSBA this is a plus for me.  Good back matter and photographs as well.  The author also didn't shy away from some of the contradictions in Bergh's life which I appreciated.

Adding to my review - had never heard of Bergh until I read the fiction book The Bandits Tale and he is mentioned in the book.  Good connection!
