With delightful wit and expert insight, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, in Fact and Fancy, happily explores the make-up of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from nose to tip-of-tail, and its heritage from nearly a millennium before Christ to its meteoric rise in popularity today.
This internationally acclaimed book has won many literary awards, including the Maxwell award for BEST BREED BOOK OF THE YEAR (2007), as selected by the Dog Writers Association of America, and an IPPY award presented for Excellence in Independent Publishing by the Independent Publisher association.
Uniquely comprehensive, this must-have book is an unblushing tribute to its beloved subject. Written by Barbara Garnett-Wilson, a longtime Cavalier breed specialist, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, in Fact and Fancy is as much a celebration as it is a reference, written with the hope of serving well the many who love this delightful breed.
This remarkable book, often called The Cavalier Bible, is entirely in full-color, with 15 comprehensive chapters totally nearly 300 pages. It boasts more than 450 full-color photos, paintings, and illustrations, displayed in a large format (10 x 10.5 inches), perfect for reference or coffee table.
To quote Matthew H. Stander in a special Westminster edition of Dog News magazine (February 9, 2007): Do yourself a favor and look into buying a copy of this masterful book.
About the Author: A native of Cheltenham, England, educated in Canada and France, Barbara Garnett-Wilson has lived in the United States since 1965.
The author s first book, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in North America (1998) sold out quickly and is now considered a collectors item.
Then in 2007, Barbara Garnett-Wilson penned The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, in Fact and Fancy, which went on to win many awards, including the Maxwell Award for Best Breed Book of the Year (2007) as presented by the Dog Writers Association of America. Later that year, this book also won an IPPY Award, awarded for Excellence in Independent Publishing, by the Independent Publisher association. Also written by Barbara, along with her husband Roy, is a third book, The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: A Tribute in Art, which was nominated as Best Anthology of the Year, by Dog Writers Association of America in 2007.
Breeder, exhibitor, and breed-specialty judge, the author lives with her husband and their Cavaliers of all ages, on picturesque Hood Canal in Washington State. Her Laughing Cavalier Kennels has, for over thirty years, imported or produced some remarkable Cavaliers, most notably the first Cavalier to win Best of Breed and a Toy Group placement at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, as well as the first two English-champion Cavaliers to be shown in the United States.
In 2004, Dog Fancy magazine honored the author s Laughing Cavalier Kennels as one of its five Kennels of Distinction in America.
