Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh's path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.
"In a very different way, Waterford Press of Phoenix, AZ has published a unique booklet, Cat Care, a simplified owner's manual ($7.95) that teaches you just about everything you need to know. It is quite brilliant even though it is quite short, taking the ready through the basics of food, health, playtime, the preparation before a cat beomces your pet, training fundamentals and everything else! This publishing house offers some wonderful Pocket Naturalis Guides, Travel, and Tutor guides, along with wildlife guies. Visit its website and be prepared to be excited by it."--Book Reviews by Alan Caruba
