here is volume 1 of this monster series of books, smile.  But I still 
believe it is worth it, they give very useful information for those of us 
who can't see, such as height, length, body and tail, weight, and a 
keyfeatures description of the animal.  Got to know what a Meerkat looks 
like from this, and can't see the pictures but was able to imagine one. 
learned that a Giant River Otter weights up to 60 Lbs.  that is slightly 
lighter than my guide dog, and the height was about the height of my golden. 

Long Synopsis:

This new multi-volume resource offers valuable information on the world's 
animals, from mammals, birds, fish, insects to reptiles and amphibians.
 Included in the book are family trees, articles on family groups, articles 
on individual animal species, a good glossary, and set index as well as 
cross references.

Each article lists the animal's common name, scientific name, key physical 
features, distribution, habitat, habits, voice, breeding and status as well 
as more specific facts about the animal.

In this volume are:
Common Raccoon, Ringtailed Coati, Red Panda, Least Weasel, Stoat, Polecat, 
Black-Footed Ferret, American Marten, Fisher, American Mink, Wolverine, 
European Otter,

and many more animals.

Also included are articles on the families that these animals belong, and 
general articles on what mammals are, and small carnivores.

Valuable resource for anyone wanting to learn more about the world's 

Needs a general looking over, to see how much damage or not I did, smile. 
232 pages. .rtf format.

Here is the long synopsis, let me know if you all think I should list the 
families of animals and the species covered, as I can if required is just a 
cut paste job from the TOC.

Dog ownership is like a rainbow.
 Puppies are the joy at one end.
 Old dogs are the treasure at the other.
