Authored by Tom Gumbert, April Kautzman
"Have you ever looked at a shooting star and wondered where it came from, how far it has traveled, and how much farther it has yet to go before its journey ends?
I have come to believe that my time spent on this earth was for a purpose greater than I myself could ever have imagined.
I am a cat."
In Nine Lives, authors April Kautzman and Tom Gumbert explore the historical application of tolerance and intolerance through the ages from ancient Egypt to a new beginning for mankind as witnessed by a cat through nine unforgettable lives.
As our narrator takes us through this remarkable journey, it reminds us ...
"Chief Dan George, a very wise man, once said, 'If you talk to the animals, they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.'
Talk with me so that i may share my journey with you and we may know one another.
