Families occasionally, and unintentionally, find themselves adopting animals-a daughter brings a goldfish home from a party, a son finds a lizard in the backyard, or a stray cat stops in for a saucer of milk and never leaves. For Mary Neiswender and her family, it is a horse.

Miss Gay is as close to human as a horse can get, and like most humans, she is a pain. Many nights Mary finds herself trudging through the rain, glasses fogging, shoes squishing through the mud eroding off one of the richest Los Angeles hillsides, trying to find her wandering, one-of-a-kind horse. This big, red, one-eyed horse, with a sway back, knobby knees, and very few teeth is a disgrace to the posh neighborhood, but she quickly becomes family to the Neiswenders. The only thing they know about horses is what they've seen in western movies and television shows, but what they lack in practical knowledge, they make up for in love and compassion.

This chronicle of their hilarious adventures with Miss Gay is full of laughs and touching moments that people of all ages will enjoy. It's endearing. It's preposterousAnd it's all true!

This volume provides a current look at how development of intensive live- stock production, particularly hogs, has affected human health with respect to zoonotic diseases primarily transmitted by food but also by water, air and oc- cupational activity. While information presented focuses on the development of increasing livestock production in Canada, examples are given and compar- isons are made with other countries (Denmark, Taiwan, the Netherlands and the United States) where the levels of livestock production are much more intense and where the industry is more mature. Canada is also searching for solutions to enable handling the growing volume of its livestock waste properly. Lessons learned from the experience of those who have gone before are invaluable and are drawn together in this volume to serve as useful guidance for others in plot- ting the courses of action possible to avoid serious environmental setbacks and negative human health effects through foodborne illness. A significant portion of the text is devoted to a discussion of enteric illness in humans caused by zoonotic pathogens. The second chapter deals with sur- vival of pathogens (which cause foodborne illness) in manure environments. An evaluation of the human health hazard likely to occur from the use of ma- nure as fertilizer is important because of the recent trend toward an increase in foodborne illness from the consumption of minimally processed fruits and vegetables that may have been fertilized with animal-derived organic materials.
