Summary

Tucked away in the woods near Center Point, Indiana, the Exotic Feline Rescue Center houses nearly 200 rescued big cats. Lions, tigers, leopards, pumas, and bobcats, as well as more obscure breeds like caracal, serval, ocelot, and lynx, have found refuge at this lush 15-acre sanctuary. In photographer Stephen D. McCloud's spirited follow-up to Saving the Big Cats: The Exotic Feline Rescue Center, more than 100 color photographs of the resident big cats, old and new, are showcased with loving detail. McCloud has spent countless hours getting to know the cats -- their likes, dislikes, quirks, and backgrounds. The affection and admiration he holds for each cat is reflected in these stunning portraits. Each cat's story is compellingly recounted by volunteer Melanie Bowlin with the help of Audra Masternak, an intern at the Center in 2008, who wrote a blog about her unforgettable experience as a keeper.

Excerpts

It is so much more than the story of the buildings; it is our story, who we are and where we come from, what we brought with us and may no longer know. Every time we lose one barn we miss the opportunity to learn, to be reminded, to understand that one, critical part of our rural past. Once that barn is lost, articulating our history, fathoming our achievements, and evaluating our present undertakings becomes more difficult, until one day there are no barns, and no barn books. But we also lose the experience of the barn itself -- the smells, the dark and dusty space, the filtered light, and the chance to open our imagination to the past. --From the Introduction by Duncan Campbell
