I absolutely loved this book from the minute I started reading it. The fact that it's written from a cow's point of view seemed a little strange at first but very quickly I grew to love Princess.

What a charming book. I worked with some Angus cows many years ago, they are a lovely breed of stock. This tale really does get inside the head of one firey young calf, I could almost feel those kicks myself.
I never went to Smithfield Show but I sure heard about it. This guy makes the ting come alive.
A great read for any cattleman.

This is a great story. Wasnt sure about the cow thing but I think being told in the first person sets the character up really well.
Had a great end too, even though it's predictable, the emotion is infectous.
Amongst it all, there is a parody somewhere, along the lines of - BELIEF CAN CONQUER ALL!
