In this pictorial memoir, animal rights activist Kristin Beach expressesthe life and observations of her wild turkey friend and neighbor, Edna Byrd, from Edna's point of view. Kristin says: "I have learned so much
by watching Edna. She spends her day roaming, pecking, eating what she wants - when she wants, exploring, grooming, interacting with others, doing her turkey dance, and stretching. She has control over her life and the ability to make choices. These are all things that we deny animals raised for food, and it breaks my heart."

Kristin Beach is a longtime volunteer for Niagara Action for Animals. She lives in St. Catharines, Ontario Canada with her vegetarian/vegan family and several companion animals. Kristin wishes that all neighbors could be as wonderful as Edna.

United Poultry Concerns is a nonprofit organization that promotes the compassionate and respectful treatment of domestic fowl. Don't just switch from beef to chicken. Go Vegan.
