"VEGAN STORIES" - TRUE LIFE TALES
FROM AROUND THE WORLD
"What story would you like? We've got travel stories, restaurant
stories, stories from around the world - those vegans get everywhere"
- Benjamin Zephaniah, vegan poet and contributor.
Edited by former Vegan Society Council member Julie Rosenfield
and launched at the World Veg Congress in Edinburgh last month,
this book is a joyful celebration of a lifstyle embraced by people
of all ages and in all walks of life, with more than 80 stories
featuring vegans of all ages from 2-year-old children to a 92-year-old
lecturer and sometime hot air balloonist. There are stories and
poems from five continents on topics covering health and fitness,
travel, dining out, animals, raw food, biographies, love and much
much more, with cartoons, photos and drawings to illustrate them.
"Storytelling is part of every culture", says Julie,
"This volume gives a voice to vegans everywhere. I hope that
people will share my delight in reading these wonderful stories
of compassion, courage, humour and determination by exceptional
individuals whose stories will inspire, amuse and entertain vegans
and non-vegans alike."
"Read them and find out why the butcher's son went vegan;
why Lucky the chick did not live up to his name; what the vegan
hospital patient was given for dinner and how two very special ladies
fought cancer and won major fitness championships by going vegan",
says Benjamin Zephaniah.
These are real people who grab your attention on every page. Vegan
Stories can be whatever you want it to be: an introduction to veganism,
a source of laughter and inspiration or just a straightforward story
book. But within these pages is the power to change people's lives
and convince the meat-eating world of exactly how and why we choose
to give up all animal products and embrace a cruelty-free lifestyle.
