Nancy Roe Pimm’s life-long love of animals compelled her to write her latest book, Bonded by Battle: The Powerful Friendships of Military Dogs and Soldiers from the Civil War to Operation Iraqi Freedom. Pimm observed military war dogs as they trained through obstacle courses and bomb-sniffing drills. Veterans shared heartfelt stories. In the past and present day, the dogs’ super senses kept our soldiers safe on base camp, as well as in the heat of the fight. Soldiers formed unbreakable bonds with their dogs, as day and night, they faced life and death in the war zone. The dogs provided comfort to our battle-weary soldiers and served not only as war dogs, but also as therapy dogs. These four-legged soldiers are sometimes heroic, and sometimes supportive, but always full of courage, loyalty, intelligence, and a whole lot of heart. Open the pages of this book to meet a bunch of unforgettable canine commandos.

An accurate and fascinating presentation. — KIRKUS

You are about to enter the lives of eight famous gorillas–male and female–old and young–with true-life stories that take you to the heart of these often misunderstood, yet fasciating beasts. Jack Hanna says, “Nancy Roe Pimm has truly captured the ‘heart of the beast’ in this long overdue book! The stories are not only insightful and authentic, but are also important in helping readers learn about the history, behaviors, and intriguing nature of these, the greatest of great apes.”

20% of Nancy’s earnings from this book are being donated to help gorillas in the wild, which are currently facing possible extinction.

Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA) members oversee the 17 sanctuaries in Africa that house gorilla/chimpanzee/bonobo and other primates that were orphaned because of the bushmeat trade. It costs $1.50 a day to feed an orphaned gorilla or chimp in these sanctuaries. The sanctuaries often act as education centers as well.
