Summary
"A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most satiric fables ever penned -- a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ops that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible." --page [4] of cover
Summary
A satire on totalitarianism in which farm animals overthrow their human owner and set up their own government
