The Illustrated Guide to Pigs covers the 35 most familiar breeds of pigs in Europe and North America. The breed profiles are written in engaging text that covers the history of each breed, its main characteristics and information about how to look after them.

Each breed has been illustrated with delightful paintings by the author. Introductory sections contain practical advice about pig-rearing and husbandry, and outline the differences between breeds, including the pros and cons of keeping pure breeds and cross breeds.

Whether you're looking to raise your own pigs or simply love these intelligent and endearing animals, this book is a must-have.
