Read full description of the books:
A compelling true story of one dog's rescue from a Pennsylvania puppy millThis touching narrative uses the poignant makeover of Gracie, a sickly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, to tell the story of America's hidden puppy mills-commercial kennels that breed dogs in horrific living conditions and churn out often-diseased and emotionally damaged puppies for sale.
"Saving Gracie" chronicles how one little dog is transformed from a bedraggled animal worn out from bearing puppies into a loving, healthy member of her new family; and how her owner, Linda Jackson, is changed from a person who barely tolerated dogs to a woman passionately determined not only to save Gracie's life, but also to get the word out about the millions of American puppy mill dogs who need our help.A touching story of survival and redemptionWritten by award-winning journalist Carol BradleyNewsworthy issues call animal lovers to action
Join journalist Carol Bradley as she draws back the curtain on the world of illegal puppy production in "Saving Gracie."

Read information about the authorBefore turning to books, I spent many years as a newspaper reporter in my home state of Tennessee, New York, Washington D.C. and Montana.
My family had a couple of dogs when I was very young and adopted a number of stray cats, but I really became interested in the lives of animals after my husband, Steve L’Heureux, and I acquired two Shelties. I was fascinated at the intelligence and emotional complexity of those beloved dogs.
I began to write about horse slaughtering and animal hoarding and – after covering an egregious puppy mill bust – my interest in the underbelly of the animal world deepened.
I studied Animal Law as a Nieman fellow at Harvard in 2004 and afterward began work on my first book: Saving Gracie: How one dog escaped the shadowy world of American puppy mill (Wiley, 2010.)
Last Chain on Billie is my second book.
I live in Great Falls, Montana with my husband and three very colorful dogs.
