Overview

The cow is perhaps the world's most appealing animal. Why do we love cows? Sara Rath answers that question and more in "The Complete Cow", a light-hearted yet serious look at dairy and beef cows of the world-both familiar and not-so-familiar. From ancient myths to a breed encyclopedia to a whimsical look at the fun pop culture surrounding famous cows, "The Complete Cow" has it all.In exploring our almost innate love of cows, Rath delivers an informative and entertaining summary of bovines around the world. Remarkably readable and inviting, "The Complete Cow" is beautifully illustrated with large-format color photos of all breeds and is the first book to feature cows from around the globe, both past and present. Great color photography is accented by images both humorous (from cartoonists such as Gary Larson) and romantic (in pastoral paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and others). Along the way readers will discover all kinds of bovine trivia: how to say "moo," "cow," and "cowpie" in many languages, a fascinating cow migration map, advice on naming a cow, and more. ". . . tells you just about everything you want to know about cows, from ancient myths to a breed encyclopedia, as well as pop culture that surrounds famous cows. Although the tone is lighthearted, there's a lot of interesting information packed into this text." "St. Paul Pioneer Press"

Editorial Reviews

The News-Leader
This amoosing history of nature's milk factory has a clear sense of humor. But it also has a lot information-probably everything most people would ever need to know-on the life and times of cows. If you think cows are cute, there are a lot of neat pictures as well.
St. Paul Pioneer Press
. . . tells you just about everything you want to know about cows, from ancient myths to a breed encyclopedia, as well as pop culture that surrounds famous cows. Although the tone is lighthearted, there's a lot of interesting information packed into this text.
Farmer to Farmer
. . . truly celebrates the cow. Remarkably readable and inviting.
From Barnes & Noble
This is a moo-ving tribute to our bovine brethren, a captivating curriculum of cow lore, and a light-footed romp through the pastures of pop culture that have made the image of the cow the beloved icon it has become.
