About this Item

*Two Piece Set* Bottom back corner of text is bumped, light shelf wear, otherwise very clean and well bound. Like the people of the Iberian Peninsula, the cooking of this region is a blend of many ingredients. The blend is complex at times, but the ingredients are not disguised and never spiced to alter basically simple tastes. The strength of Iberian cooking is natural, and its subtlety is derived from the combination of ingredients. Beautifully illustrated throughout. The Recipe Booklet was designed for use in the kitchen. It contains all of the 66 recipes printed in the hard cover copy plus 39 more. Size: Hard Cover 9x11" 208 Pgs + Coil Bound 6x9" 112 Pgs.

About this title


Our feline companions are much-loved but often mysterious. In The Inner Life of Cats, Thomas McNamee blends scientific reportage with engaging, illustrative anecdotes about his own beloved cat, Augusta, to explore and illuminate the secrets and enigmas of her kind.

As it begins, The Inner Life of Cats follows the development of the young Augusta while simultaneously explaining the basics of a kitten's physiological and psychological development. As the narrative progresses, McNamee also charts cats' evolution, explores a feral cat colony in Rome, tells the story of Augusta's life and adventures, and consults with behavioral experts, animal activists, and researchers, who will help readers more fully understand cats.

McNamee shows that with deeper knowledge of cats' developmental phases and individual idiosyncrasies, we can do a better job of guiding cats' maturation and improving the quality of their lives. Readers' relationships with their feline friends will be happier and more harmonious because of this book.
