This essential field guide provides descriptions of twenty goat breeds found in the United States and Canada. Convenient and easy to use, this book is packed with information about behavior, characteristics, breeding, and history. Ultimately, the publisher is the one to blame for bringing this book to print. They chose an author who has no more authority to write a goat book than I do to write a book on horses. I have a retired old horse who lives here as a pasture ornament. With so many knowledgeable goat people in the world who know how to write, it is sad that the publisher chose a person with a single pet goat to write a book on the subject.
