Reviews and Commentary for A Field Guide to Cows

Statesman Journal, Salem, Oregon : This is both a read-at-home and take-along book.

The Courier-Journal, Kentucky : ...a fascinating and sometimes very funny paperback book with 141 pages of cow facts and more.

Customer Comments powerplay@cheerful.com from Melbourne, Australia , 12/12/97, rating=8: Anyone who likes cows will like this book. This book has a light-hearted feel to it - and why not ? Cows are a bit hard to take seriously ! But 'A Field Guide to Cows' is not an attempt to poke fun AT cows, it is a fun , very readable summary of all the major types of cows, suitable for both beginners and experienced cow farmers. The non-serious nature of the book means you are more likely to keep re-reading it and learn more than you would from a boring serious book. I lent a copy of this to a cow farmer who normally doesn't enjoy books, and he loved it ! Cows Rule , OK?
