Goat Song: A Seasonal Life, a Short History of Herding and the Art of Making Cheese, by Brad Kessler. A weird choice, but a very enchanting book. This guy and his wife go from New York City off to Vermont and start a small herd of goats and make their own cheese. He writes beautifully and poetically, and his descriptions of the cold make me feel chilly even in the hot and humid Florida air where I live. Even if you don't care a hoot about cheese making, this book is filled with all sorts of fun facts and interesting observations about animal companions, so it'll keep you reading. I'd definitely recommend it.
