Soul of a Dog by Jon Katz. Just wonderful reading and wonderful photography. A man and his dogs, donkeys, sheep, barn cat and a 2500 pound steer named Elvis...on 100 some beautiful acres called Bedlam Farms...and supported by some great human friends also.

Hit by a Farm & Sheepish by Catherine Friend. Anyone who has raised sheep and chickens will laugh your head off! Catherine also does not shrink back about the touching realities of farm life.

The Daily Coyote by Shreve Stockton. City girl moves to desolate but beautiful Wyoming. Boyfriend who on the side, "gets rid of" coyotes who attack livestock (a bit of reality here), finds a coyote cub some days old, gives to city, now country gal to raise, and wow...what a story you have, along with beautiful photos by Shreve which chronicles Charlie's (the Coyote) life from squeaky babe to majestic adulthood. And Charlie is still living life to the fullest! Visit Shreve's website at www.thedailycoyote.com
