This is a wonderfully written book. In Animal Adventures in North Carolina, Jennifer Bower writes about the different places you can go to visit animals and see them in zoos, and things like that. There are a lot of zoos that Bower talks about, and tips about visiting the zoos and seeing the animals. She includes eye-catching photos of different animals, and great detail and some history about them as well. I would definitely recommend this book to animals lovers, whether you are going to North Carolina or not! I would like to thank John F. Blair Publishers for graciously supplying this book in exchange for this review.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895873826, Paperback)

Weekend and day trips are always fun. Combine them with attractions that allow the viewing, touching, and feeding of animals and such excursions suddenly become adventures. If you have ever dreamed of listening to the howls of a New Guinea singing dog, inhaling the distinct smell of a binturong, trekking through the mountains beside a llama, or touching the furry leg of a tarantula, then Animal Adventures in North Carolina is the travel guide for you - and you won't even need a passport.

Animal attractions draw over 200 million visitors in the United States each year. These attractions provide many Americans with their only connection to nature. Throughout North Carolina, facilities dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation of various animal species abound. Through a variety of exhibits, programs, and personal encounters, these facilities heighten appreciation for animal conservation while offering exciting educational experiences for everyone in the family.

In Animal Adventures in North Carolina
, Jennifer Bean Bower shares 70 animal attractions that she has personally discovered throughout her travels of the entire state. Each entry provides contact information, driving directions, possible fees, hours of operation, and useful travel tips, accompanied by photographs and detailed descriptions of the attraction's offerings. An extensive appendix lists additional opportunities for viewing and interacting with animals in North Carolina, including wildlife refuges, farm tours, nature preserves, and working farm vacations.
