In A Barnyard Bestiary David Bouchard focuses his poetic insight on domestic animals - some rare, some extinct, and some still quite common. The thread that binds these animals together is the way their relationship with man has deteriorated with the passage of time. Through the voices of such familiar beasts as the Highland Cow, the Buffalo and the Ostrich, and exotics like the Blonde Mangalitza Pig and the Onagadori Chicken, he questions the wisdom of our deliberate neglect of these once-prized beasts whose usefulness belongs to another era. Kimball Allen's highly realistic and profoundly evocative paintings capture the exotic and unique nature of each of her subjects. This collection of sensitive poetry and spectacular art will delight and move children and adults alike.
