A fountain of greasy cinders spewed from the steamship's black-topped funnel. A deep horn bellowed as the pilot boat slipped away and the vessel gained speed. Standing poised at the bow, with the fresh wind in his face, was Horatio Mudd, pig at large...

From his humble beginnings in the English countryside and with the sure sentence of death upon him, Horatio Mudd escapes to America. There he begins life anew and discovers unimaginable hardships and a society unable to accept his porcine heritage.

A story so gripping you'll never view humans the same again... and an example of one hog's triumph over adversity! -The Saturday Evening Pig

This story breaks the dreadful stereotype cast by George Orwell's work of fiction Animal Farm. Long live Horatio Mudd!!! - Playpig Magazine

We're not sure this is kosher... - American Rabbinical Review

Author Neal Parker treats his subject with a sensitivity unequaled. The reader might well believe he himself is swine. - WPIG-TV
