The concept of heroism is not always valued in today's cynical world, but it exists nonetheless and never more so than in the animal rights campaigner, Vicki Moore. In her tragically short life, Vicki, in partnership with her equally committed husband, Tony Moore, single-mindedly set about eliminating animal cruelty wherever she found it.Whether filming in the midst of an angry crowd in one of Spain's notorious blood fiestas, or protesting against hare-coursers in this country, she would always put her own safety last and the animals' welfare first. This courageous attitude frequently exposed her to grave danger, either from the perpetrators and spectators, angry at her interference, or from the animals themselves, who, enraged by the agonies to which they were being subjected, were unable to distinguish friend from foe. And so it was that on 25 June 1995, she was gored repeatedly by a full grown bull called Argentino. The frenzied attack, in which she was tossed about like a rag doll, left her broken ...and bleeding ...and near to death ...Yes, Vicki Moore was a heroine, by any definition, and this book stands as a lasting testament to her life and work.
