 Barbara Garnett-Wilson's new FULL-COLOR book,

 
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel,
in Fact and Fancy

 

Excerpts from The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club (UK) e-Newsletter, October, 2007, by Tina and Dennis Homes:

I had firmly believed the subject [of Cavaliers] had been well and truly covered and that there was little room for yet another publication. But how wrong could I be! The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in Fact and Fancy by Barbara Garnett-Wilson is an absolutely excellent volume, covering virtually every aspect of our wonderful breed.

Beautifully laid out, the book takes an in-depth look at so many facets of the Cavalier, many of which have never been covered by previous publications. Highly informative and comprehensive...[with] an enormous amount of research.... [The author’s] love and enthusiasm for the breed shine through in her sheer exuberance and wonderful writing style.

Over the years I have accumulated quite a number of excellent Cavalier books, but this one most surely takes pride of place. A book that you simply cannot put down.

 

A review (excerpted) by Matthew H. Stander, in a special Westminster edition of Dog News magazine, February 9, 2007:

"...rarely do breed books demand a review.  However, there are always exceptions...[and] certainly Barbara Garnett-Wilson's incredibly beautiful The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, in Fact and Fancy is that case in point!  I cannot recall...a more beautifully published and presented breed tome. Every photograph is in full-color...the quality of the print job is so high, it boggles the mind...[and] by and large the photographs used are of museum-type importance.

"The added plus is the overall coverage and content presented by the author, who is an acknowledged and recognized authority.  Here, too, Mrs. Garnett-Wilson exceeds all expectations. This book is simply in a class by itself and makes all [other] efforts...pale in comparison.  It deserves all the praise being heaped upon it!

"Do yourself a favor and look into buying a copy of this masterful book."

PRESENTATION SET



The public response to The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, in Fact and Fancy has been remarkably positive.  Here are only a few unsolicited comments from dozens we have received (to see more, CLICK HERE):

"Fact and Fancy is the most extravagantly beautiful breed book I have ever seen! Every page is a treat for the eyes. And the text is fabulous---worth reading every word. Best of all, it gives facts and information about Cavaliers that will help owners care for them the way this special breed deserves. You have created the ultimate Cavalier book.” P. Hall, Fredericksburg, TX

"I was an English major in college, so I am not easily 'blown away' by new books, but Fact and Fancy did just that. Your photos and layout and presentation of the information are all first rate. I am so impressed and thankful that I bought your publication. It is a fantastic book. I have never written a letter of praise for a new book; however I felt compelled to let you know how I felt about your book." J. Main, Sun City Center, FL

“Just thought I would send you a quick note to thank you for your great service in purchasing your incredible book. I am so pleased with it; the beautiful photos and information provided has far outweighed any other book I have seen on Cavaliers. Thanking you once again...” N. Hore, Australia

“The book is fabulous! It arrived yesterday and has been highly detrimental to my work productivity (I'm a telecommuter and work at home). I can't wait to read it from cover to cover. In skimming through it, I see that it has a wonderful blend of Cavalier "lore" and practical tips on such things as nutrition and grooming. And the photos are gorgeous! Thanks you so much! I can't wait for the next book!” S. Harris, Winston-Salem, NC

"I'm speechless after receiving my book!  It's worth every penny! I ordered two more today to give as gifts and I can't wait to get them. Now to be left in quiet so I can read every page."  L. Adams, Claremont, California.

"I received my book today. It is far beyond my expectations! Unbelievable in quality! I am in the printing business and the quality was fantastic. I have not put it down since I received it.  I would like to buy 2 more.  Again the information and the book itself are wonderful - I call it 'The Cavalier Bible.' I will treasure it forever! I will not let it leave my house. That is why I need two more."  D. Prather, Birmingham, AL

"First of all, let me tell you that I received my copy of the new book and loved every page of it. In all honesty I think the book is by far, the best I have ever read! The photographs and art were masterfully interspersed in just the right places to add to the writing. This is not an attempt to flatter you, I sincerely feel that you have achieved a book that will be recommended as 'THE BOOK' on Cavaliers for many years to come. I am sure that time and history will prove me correct."  E. Bernhardt, San Jose, California.
