Présentation de l'éditeur

Pursuing your passion includes a whole lot of crap. For Bud DeYoung, that’s about two hundred pounds a day!

Since childhood, Bud had a passion for animals. As an adult, that passion led to the rescue of a bear who lived in his family’s house, then more animals crowding for space, until Bud eventually built an entire private zoo around his home in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Along the way, a regular visitor named Carrie joined her passion for animals with Bud’s. Together they now educate the public about animal conservation, battle the harsh winters and blazing summers, and daily dole out love to the hundreds of rescued animals in their care. Meanwhile, they teach by example how to make the world a better place while pursuing their passion.

Welcome to the fascinating, heartwarming journey of one man, one woman, and an amazing cast of critters, whose stories will warm your soul. Welcome to the wild life of the DeYoung Family Zoo.

Great book! Very interesting story about how Bud DeYoung started a Zoo in the upper peninsula of Michigan. The zoo is one of our favorite places to visit every summer, we have been visiting for the past 15 years, so we enjoyed all the stories about our favorite animals. I highly recommended you get the book and when you are finished reading it, go visit the zoo. You won't be disappointed!

Review:

Bud DeYoung always wanted a life with animals. Starting from a young age he brought home critters and cared for them. Even though he was sidetracked by circumstances into working the family store, he still kept up with his critters. Starting with poultry, fowl and small animals. His mother encouraged him to follow his dreams. And he has been doing so ever since he was young. Through a failed marriage, financial issues and fierce Michigan winters, he preserved and kept his dream alive. His private zoo thrives in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula regardless of the hardships.

Bud’s first big animal was a bear he rescued that ended up living in his home. In this book, Bud takes us from his childhood, through his first encounters with wildlife, a failed marriage to his first love and on to his finding a perfect partner in a visitor to the zoo. The DeYoung Family Zoo was even featured on Nat Geo Wild for a season. Bud tells us how he ended up in this strange profession, following his dream every day, and dreaming bigger and better always.

Through Bud’s own words we meet his partner in the zoo and in life Carrie. She was a regular visitor that came and ended up staying. Even after meeting his wolves(a way he weeded out the dates previously). Carrie not only thrived as his partner, bringing passion and new ideas to the zoo, but also started her own rescue. The stories dealing with her rescue are so heartwarming and full of hope and love.

For me I have to say that the parts of this book I enjoyed most were THE LETTERS FROM OUR VISITORS, HOW IT ALL COMES BACK AND BEYOND OUR DREAMS. Those were so inspiring and heartfelt. This is a very enjoyable book. The format is nice and keeps you entertained with humor, kindness and depth of knowledge. It is not a preaching in your face book. More like sitting on a rambling porch listening to wonderful stories told by a kind hearted man. Any animal lover, like myself, will find this a beautiful story full of inspiration and love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you are an animal lover, you'll love this book! 30 juillet 2014

Format:Format Kindle
Bud DeYoung’s love of animals started early. As a child, his collection grew from a flock of ducklings in the back yard to chickens, pigeons and all sorts of critters in trouble. Instead of delving into sports, Bud chose to give guided tours through his backyard menagerie @ two bits a trip. Eventually, his passion grew into a full-fledged animal rescue operation. A zoo.

We come to know the personalities of various animals, presented like well-loved members of the family. Wallace, the hippo that responds to verbal commands and crushes watermelons between his jaws to impress the crowd. Teddy Bear, the four-hundred pound black bear rescued from a small enclosure to discover the wonders of grass beneath his feet and roaming free. Or Louie the loving orphan-chimp whose best friend was a dingo named Janis.

Scenes throughout impart the frantic feel of zoo-life to the reader, keeping one turning the pages to see what-in-the-world will happen next. Bud and his friend, Carrie, give us an inside look at the daily delights and challenges of running a zoo. We learn how adopting one chimp led to a desire to create a primate rescue facility to save many and how a close encounter with a pet deer’s antlers turned dangerous in a heartbeat.

Pick up this book for a bit of adventure. It is a novel escape into the wild - right in your living room.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very fun read 18 août 2014

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been going up to visit the De Young Zoo every summer for quite a few years now. It was fun to learn more about Bud & Carrie. I discovered from reading this book, that back when Bud & I were in our early 20s we unloaded semis together. In the book, Bud says he drove a Semi for Carpenter Cook/Fairway Foods in the 80's. I'm pretty sure it was Bud on Saturday mornings at Fazer's IGA in Kewaunee who drove the truck.

One thing that comes across quite clear from the book is Bud & Carries passion and love of animals. I could see that first hand when visiting the zoo. I could see that when reading this book.

We were at the zoo when Nat Geo Wild was filming. They interviewed my daughter who was 10 at the time. They interviewed her because Bud & Carrie let her have a kitten to take home. We still have that cat today.

The book is fun. You learn about 2 people who really followed their passion in life. They work very hard, but totally love what they do. I've always enjoyed their zoo, it is fun to learn how that zoo came together. The book is filled with all kinds of interesting stories about the zoo and their wild life.
