From the New York Times bestselling author of Unlikely Friendships and Unlikely Loves, Unlikely Heroes features true —if sometimes unbelievable— stories about animals that have proven themselves to be heroes in one form or another. A llama who visits hospitals to provide comfort and cuddles for patients of all ages. An Elephant Seal who protects a man from the aggression of other seals. A Sandhill Crane incubates endangered Whooping Crane eggs instead of her own. A dog that lost all four paws to frostbite when he was abandoned as a puppy gains four prosthetic paws and a new, inspirational lease on life. Interviewing scientists and zoologists from around the world, Holland tracked down firsthand sources and interviewed eyewitnesses. And each story is as heartwarming as those that helped define her previous bestsellers.
