As a “voice for the voiceless,” Jim Willis touches human hearts as deftly as he bonds with the animals he rescues. His writings have inspired animal lovers around the world in over a dozen languages. Now, with publication of his collected writings in the USA and the UK, the Author has made a generous arrangement with the publishers that can benefit the fundraising efforts of all animal rescue, conservation and environmental groups.

In Pieces of My Heart – Writings Inspired by Animals and Nature the author paints an emotional rainbow with a palette akin to Thoreau, Khalil Gibran, James Thurber, Chief Seattle, and James Herriot. Pieces of My Heart encompasses favorites such as “We Are Their Heroes,” “How Could You?,” “The Basset Chronicles,” and “The Zen of Cat,” as well as a treasure-trove of new writings. Included is an Appendix of suggestions and resources for helping animals; and a Foreword by Dr. Marc Bekoff, author of Minding Animals: Awareness, Emotions, and Heart and co-founder with Dr. Jane Goodall of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals/Citizens for Responsible Animal Behavior Studies. Illustrated by Christine J. Head. (Softcover, 312 pages.)

Pieces of My Heart is a soulful, heartfelt tribute to animals and a plea for compassion. As you immerse yourself in its truths you’ll reach for the nearest animal to hug, you’ll smile through tears, and you’ll feel the urge to run barefoot in the grass.

Reviewer: Michele M.
I cried when I read it and I cry whenI think about it. How some people can give up the animals they had once sworn to protect Is so disheartening. I people read this and learn from it. Jim willis Is a great man for putting in writing what so many of us feel in our hearts

  Great gift idea for everyone , 11/21/2007
Reviewer: MVMeehan
This book taught me what it means to be an animal advocate. It is so very different from the public's image of an "Animal Rights advocate" that I had to buy copies for all my family members-- including those without pets. Jim Willis truly is a "Voice for the Voiceless". Read this book to discover a gentle soul with a spirit to tame every heart.
