Very Informative.

I was looking for a book about alpacas. This is a great book to give you an idea of what these animals are all about. I love that they talk about what to do with their

A must-read for llama enthusiasts

This is an excellent source of information and I recommend it to anyone who is considering having a llama, and even to the veteran llama owner. This book covers extensive information on care of llamas that is not generally compiled in other places. As a llama breeder, we strongly recommmed this book to all our buyers and suggest that potential new owners read it BEFORE they make a final decision to own llamas. It contains great information in an easy to read format. For new owners, it provides tremendous insight on what to plan for with pasture, fencing, care, behaviors, etc. Note that this book covers many high-level veterinary care points, but is not intended to provide in-depth medical information.

A Must Have!!!!!!

This book is sort of the "Dummies Guide" to raising llamas. It not only covers common sense but also in depth topics. Before we purchased our llamas we did a lot of research and this is a book that we chose to keep permanently in our library. We are purchasing it for our local public library as a gift to all that may be interested in lloving llamas.

Great book for beginners!

I checked this book out from the library and found it so helpful and interesting that I'll be buying it to have on hand. I don't have llamas yet, but would like to in the future. In the mean time, I'm trying to read and learn as much about it as I can. This book was great for me as a beginner, but complete enough to expand upon if you've had llamas for a while. It covers all the basics of care and breeding as well as a great section on creating a business with your llamas like packing, showing, fertilizer, etc. Gale Birutta is a great author that presents everything in a clear and interesting manner. I loved this book and I recommend it to anyone interested in llamas.

A comprhensive book on all aspects of llamas.

This is one of the few books that addresses how to show, sell, care for and train llamas. It covers more areas of llama ownership than any other book I have read. If you want a llama for a pet, or for more than that, this is a good read.
