Questions and Comments Welcome

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.

…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.

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.
