When Tumbleweed and Levi first come to live with Rosana and Kelly Hart in the rugged mountains of southern Oregon, the Harts are delighted by the endearing individuality of each llama. Soon they acquire more llamas and plunge into the joys and sorrows of llama breeding. Gradually, Rosana and Kelly find their lives becoming far more intertwined with those of the llamas than they had ever expected. What happens as Rosana opens to telepathic communication with the animals, and the crisis that occurs when a dream proves prophetic, provide the final tales in a fast-paces book that will charm and inform all animal lovers. Over 60 black-and-white photos convey the llamas' majesty and inquisitiveness. An appendix provides access to further information.
