Publisher's Summary

The rediscovered gem following a farmer's thoughtful and moving observations of her herd and the intelligence of cows.
Cows are as varied as people. They can be highly intelligent or slow to understand; vain, considerate, proud, shy or inventive. Although much of a cow's day is spent eating, they always find time for extracurricular activities such as babysitting, playing hide-and-seek, blackberry picking or fighting a tree. This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world.

Well worth reading

I loved this book and I read the whole thing in one day. It's a surprisingly interesting and moving collection of observations. I really enjoyed it and I think it will change the way I shop for food and the way I think of think of all animals.
