A pretty solid read for those interested in the llama/alpaca industry. It was a bit repetitive, as most of the chapters followed the same format, but thoroughly informational which is what you really need in these kinds of books.

This is the best book I've found detailing the purchase, care, feeding and breeding of llamas and alpacas.

No dreamy stories about what wonderful pets they make, this book deals with the realities of owning these animals.
