In “Buddy: How a Rooster Made Me a Family Man,” author Brian McGrory eventually sees the rooster he’s inherited, Buddy, shares the kind of extraordinary relationship with Pam and her two girls that he wants for himself. The rooster is what McGrory needs to be – strong and content, devoted to what he has rather than what might be missing. As McGrory learns how to live by living with animals, Buddy changes from nemesis to inspiration in this inherently human story of love, acceptance and change.
