Benjamin Lockhart’s Animal Farm
A Visionary Tale of the End of Days
About the Book
FANTASY Benjamin Lockhart worked in the aerospace industry in Florida for almost four decades. But all of the years being tossed around in a high-stress, industry environment had taken its toll. Lockhart was physically tired and emotionally exhausted, and ready for something a little less stressful. And so he and his wife, Martha, picked up stakes and moved to South-Central Pennsylvania, where they purchased a small farm property and prepared to live out the remainder of their days in the peaceful Pennsylvania countryside. It didn’t turn out exactly as planned. Following a motorcycle accident and near-death experience, Lockhart found that he could now hear animals talking in his mind. And he was astounded to discover they had a great deal to say. Benjamin Lockhart’s Animal Farm is a visionary tale of the End of Days when animals which have historically been natural enemies ‒ predator and prey ‒ unexplainably come together in idyllic harmony alongside man, on a Pennsylvania farmstead. The paradigm shift presents a formidable challenge for Benjamin Lockhart and his neighbors. It isn’t an easy transition and Lockhart struggles on a daily basis protecting the animals he befriends and ensuring their safety. For Lockhart and his wife, it’s just one amazing surprise after another.
