From the Publisher:
Noah had it easy. On any given day at the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch in Medina, Texas, Nancy Parker-Simons, her husband Tony Simons, and a willing crew of employees and volunteers care for at least sixty rescued dogs, not to mention numerous cats, chickens, pigs, horses, wild mustangs, donkeys, and a rooster named Alfred Hitchcock-and Kinky Friedman, the rescue ranch's "Gandhi-like figure" who brings Nancy and Tony stray and abused animals, raises money for the rescue ranch, and makes sure no one leaves the ranch without a dog or two. In this entertaining book, Nancy Parker-Simons tells the heartwarming, often hilarious story of the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch. She describes how a series of "it must have been fate" incidents brought her together with Tony Simons and Kinky Friedman, and how, in 1998, the three of them decided to create a no-kill haven for homeless and abused animals in the Texas Hill Country. Since their first rescue--the "magnificent seven" which were, in fact, forty-one dogs liberated from local animal shelters--"Cousin Nancy" and her crew have rescued over one thousand animals. Parker-Simons tells the fascinating stories of several dozen fortunate dogs, cats, and other animals that have come to the rescue ranch, either to be adopted by new owners or to live out their days in the ranch's "utopia." She also pays tribute to the many supporters who have helped keep the ark afloat, including First Lady Laura Bush, Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dwight Yoakam, Robert Earl Keen, Molly Ivins, and Don Imus. Everyone who cares about animal welfare will find The Road to Utopia hard to resist.
Author Bio
Kinky Friedman
American novelist and short-story writer Kinky Friedman has had considerable success both as a writer and a musician. As leader of Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jewboys, he created such country hits as "Get Your Biscuits In The Oven And Your Buns In The Bed", a song that earned him a "Chauvinist Pig of the Year" award from the National Organization of Women. An irreverent personality, Friedman is a frequent guest on talk radio and a shameless self-promoter. For many years he has lived in the Texas hill country with an assortment of cats and dogs and an armadillo.
