If you like ferrets, this is a good book. As a long-time ferret enthusiast and keeper, nature photographer Warren Krupsaw illustrates and tells the story of his last ferret: how acquired and named, various adventures (and misadventures), companions (alive and stuffed), until the final end.

Contributing to the book's uniqueness is that, while for the most part, it's written in first and third person singular, it also includes portions in "first ferret singular."

Besides the story itself, there's a ferret poem and ferret-inspired psalm.

About the Author

With a B.A. from Harvard College (1965) and a M.F.A. (Photography) from R.I.S.D. (1968), nature photographer (Landscape, Detail, Animals, and anything in-between) Warren Krupsaw's greatest influence has been the work and writing of Edward Weston with his concern "to perceive more clearly than the eyes can see" and "to reveal the essence of the thing."

Always of the belief that "if you can see it, you can photograph it" and taking the time for close observation, his subjects often reveal themselves in wondrous ways. As a kind of "visual organizer," he also closely identifies with Weston's contention that "Composition is the strongest way of seeing."

While having traveled extensively in the past, currently most of Warren's time is spent locally exploring the visual significance of the commonplace.

His self-published book: "Portraits of Passion and Other Dalliances" is available from Xlibris.
