Book Description

January 1994 0916289192 978-0916289195 2
Why own llamas? For love: with an innate dignity and serene yet inquisitive approach to life, llamas are a joy to be around. Their grace, beauty, and high intelligence are delightful. For money: Llama breeding, commercial llama packing, and a variety of other llama-related activities can be profitable. Breeding alpacas, diminutive relatives of the llama, is an exciting new field. This book draws on the expertise of 75 llama and alpaca breeders to bring you a comprehensive, detailed look at what's happening now in North America. Over 35 photographs add their charm. (Publisher's note: llama prices are down since the book came out... perhaps the book should be called Llamas for Love and Maybe Money! But most of the information is still pertinent.)

About the Author

Rosana Hart, daughter of noted science-fiction writer Cordwainer Smith, has been writing animal stories since she was 8. With her husband, she runs Hartworks, which publishes books and videos on whatever the Harts get fascinated by! REVIEW: "One of the best things about this book is Hart's complete candor -- she holds nothing back -- giving readers both the pro and con of raising llamas." -- The Discriminating Librarian "Packed with practical advice on all aspects of llama care, the easy, no-nonsense style of this book makes for compulsive reading. I was delighted to find a chapter on alpacas in this book and to read some very positive comments on these cousins of the llama." -- Camelid Capers [England] "Rosana Hart is quite well known to the world of llama owners and she is an accomplished writer. She always gives the reader the thoughtful side, the considered view... Well worth reading!" -- Llamas Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars llamas for income June 10 2001
By John Halliburton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book goes more into the operation of an income producing llama farm than other books I've read on the subject. It covers not just daily care, but how to actually DO things with the animals to offset their care cost. Some of the data is a bit outdated, such as cost for good animals, but the underlying premises still hold true. If you've ever wondered "Why a llama?", here's where you can learn more.

Even though this is an older book it had a lot of information that is still useful today. I had a fun time reading through it. There were also interesting ideas on how to use llamas to make money.
