During this weeks show we will hear many stories about animals that were rescued, the people who saved their lives and in doing so, were helped in profound and unexpected ways.

She graduated from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota and attended graduate school in English Literature at the University of Minnesota. A former reporter at the Minneapolis Star (later the Star Tribune), she freelances for publications ranging from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to PEOPLE, EQUUS, Practical Horseman, and others. Her writing has won Lowell Thomas awards for  both investigative reporting and for maritime journalism.
