I didn't read this until I was in my 20s, but I'm including it in this list of early animal rights influences because I think it would be of value to any young person looking to develop their relationships with and understanding of our non-human brothers and sisters. Adams has an extraordinary sensitivity to animals' feelings and thoughts, and the book really helped me in my struggle to understand animals' perspectives. It also includes numerous very animal rightsy messages about the need for animals to maintain their autonomy from humans to remain true to their identities, and is really a book all about environmental speciesism.
