Build A Jungle Zoo
by: Straughan, Robert

He also suggests improving zoos and animal farms that already exist to that of an open-air zoo where animals roam free rather than be enclosed in concrete cages. B/W photos. 272 pgs.

Camel Lot
by: Schaffer, Moselle

A tender and amusing book about animals that will appeal to anyone who loved James Herriot's All Things Great and Small. It is the true story of Moselle Schaffer and her zoo-illogical farm in Indiana. The author led a conventional life in Indianapolis until she obtained a pilot's license and moved with her husband to a nearby farm with an airstrip. At the suggestion of a circus-performer friend, the couple began to raise exotic animals in the empty barns, beginning with camels and zebras. Other beasts came later--tiger cubs, llamas, miniature goats, monkeys, a pig. The author acted as obstetrician to an ostrich chick named Watts (the egg had been incubated under a 100-watt light bulb) and found a Leghorn hen to act as its foster mother. The menagerie survived, but the marriage did not. Schaffer now runs Camel Lot as a bed-and-breakfast. A witty and entertaining book. 274 pgs.
