--Jane Goodall

"The Bond is the best overall book on animals I have ever read. Brilliant and moving."

"The Bond is at once heart-breaking and heart-warming. No animal escapes Wayne Pacelle's attention; nor should his book escape any human animal's attention."
--Alexandra Horowitz, New York Times Bestselling Author of Inside of a Dog
