Top breeds from around the world are represented--from the graceful Large Black to the aristocratic Tamworth and the much-traveled Kune-Kune--with graphic charts containing all the essential breed information. There's also a potted history of pigs, plus reportage photography of the behind-the-scenes primping and preening at the agricultural shows, to capture the care that is lavished on prizewinning pigs and the nail-biting judging process.
This is a book to gladden the heart of pig-lovers the world over. Packed with breed information, Beautiful Pigs is a unique gift guaranteed to make every reader feel, well, as happy as a pig in muck.
