From Saint Francis to Saint Brigid, this book highlights the relationships of “the beasts of the field” and the birds of the sky with twelve holy men and women who cared for them.

Through simple faith and compassion, these remarkable men and women were able to tame ravenous wolves, churn buckets and buckets of golden butter from cows’ milk, and rescue hunted does and stags.
