Gregarious or shy, curious or placid, playful or retiring, all the animals inTraer Scott's newest collection have one thing in common: a sparklingpersonality! This whimsical, soulful, and personal photo collection focuseson the lives of the farm animals we often take for granted. Scott introducesus to barnyard animals both familiar and lesser known, from cows, pigs,sheep, and chickens to Dolly the wooly llama, Bianca the Sicilian miniaturedonkey, Percy the Indian peafowl, and Justice the yak. Some of the animalsare kept as pets; others are denizens of farm sanctuaries that Scott hasvisited. She shares her anecdotes about a Texas longhorn steer whose bestfriends are a trio of goats, a turkey who likes to snack on grapes andwatermelon, and many others. Lively captions provide information on eachbreed, to round out this enchanting tribute to our four-legged (and winged)friends from the farm.

Traer Scott is a photographer and the author of eight books, includingFinding Home: Shelter Dogs and their Stories and Raptors: Portraits of Birdsof Prey. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her husband, daughter,and creatures.
