Though descended from a rugged European environment, this hardy toy breed requires special care - and The Book of the Yorkshire Terrier provides practical advice and much more. In addition to valuable information about grooming, breeding, showing, training, and routine maintenance, the book offers a wealth of fascinating text dealing with the history of the breed and its developers, highlighted with hundreds of enchanting photographs.

This is a handy little cactus identifyer, easily slipped into a pocket or bag. It shows blooms and type of cactus, has color photos. The book is under 6" x 6" and maybe an inch thick. The author, Helmut Bechtel, is well-known in the field and more currently known in the area of orchid care and identification.

When The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition made its initial appearance in 1972 it was hailed as "the greatest contribution to dog feeding since the invention of the can opener!" it was also the first time a major book on this vital subject was made available to persons outside the scientific community. During the intervening years The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition has achieved the deserved status of a classic: a peerless source of reference for every dog feeder.

The new edition provides essential information about foods and feeding methods now widely used that were hardly known or entirely non-existent when the first edition was published. Happily, everything in the first edition that made this book so outstanding remains in the new edition. This will be particularly welcome by new readers.

Pet owners, hobbyists and professionals can all benefit from The Collins Guide to Dog Nutrition. It takes a complex subject and makes it easier for dog feeders to understand to furnish a better standard of living for all the dogs in their care.

Behind The Complete Yorkshire Terrier is an authority attested by the greatest kennel record in the breed's history.

I nearly three decades of devotion to the breed, the authors - twin sisters Joan B Gorden and Janet E Bennett - have finished 169 Yorkshire Terriers to AKC championship, over a hundred of them homebred. Over two-thirds of all-breed Bests in Show won by Yorkshire Terriers in America, and 16 of the 22 parent Specialty wins, have been won by their dogs. One of their dogs stands as the all-time top winer of the breed, and another as the all-time top sire of Yorkie champions.

The Complete Yorkshire Terrier rewardingly reflects this unmatched experience. For veterans and novices alike, the superb chapters on care and grooming (brimming with special insights and hints) are sure to become the quoted guide for years to come. Fanciers will find the in-depth studies of the standard and judging an invaluable aid in showing their yorkies.

And putting icing on the cake is the weath of more than 300 super illustrations, including photo studies from birth to adulthood, and pictures of virtually every outstanding Yorkshire Terrier in American show history.

This was a great book. The story was compelling. It was well written and enjoyable.

Of particular interest to me, this is a local story that took place in Berkeley, CA, around a local pharmacy with an ice cream story. I pass that place every day.

Great book.

Another of Jane Smiley's books about relationships and betrayal ... this one centered around men and business - and, of course, the business of family. As usual for her, very well written, excellent character development. The pace is pretty good. My only criticism ... the general theme of how people always disappoint you.

I loved this book. It was sweet and kind - gentle in a way it's not always easy to find these days. Billie Letts also wrote the book about the girl who lived in a Walmart (Where the Heart Is). Her style is consistent between the two books.
