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!
