The MOTHER EARTH NEWS Book Gift Selection

Besides THE MOTHER EARTH NEWS itself, what better present for anyone's future could you give than a book for better living. And folks, this year's gift selection from MOTHER'S Bookshelf is really somethin' special. Every publication here has been handpicked . . . has been carefully culled from hundreds of titles so you have the "best of the best" to choose from.

For that close friend who likes to work with his head and his hands, wrap up the Encyclopedia of Furniture Making. And your favorite aunt would really enjoy thumbing through all those delicious recipes from Laurel's Kitchen. (And think of those great dinners you'll be in for!) If your mom or dad likes to garden, they'll love it even more with a copy of Organic Gardening Under Glass . . . or the beautifully illustrated Health Plants of the World, with color plates so real you can almost pick the leaves.

MOTHER's made giving easy, too. Browse leisurely through this library of practical, useful books. Choose the ones you want. Then fill in the handy Holiday Gift Order Form and send it along with your check or money order. Right now's a good time. You'll have your shopping done. And we'll be able to take prompt care of your order . . . get those books back to you in plenty of time to place neatly under the tree. The prices won't bust your pocket, either. And you'll make a lot of people happy. Especially on Christmas morn. And many a morning thereafter.


A Veterinary Guide For Animal Owners

By C. E. Spaulding.

At last, a truly practical, plain-language guide to the care and treatment of house and barnyard animals! C. E. Spaulding (whom many of you will recognize as Countryside and Small Stock Journal's veterinary columnist) has compiled this handbook with the layman in mind. and has drawn upon his own 25 years of veterinary experience in order to provide really reliable, up-to-date how-to information. Everything you need to know to prevent, identify, and cure diseases and other health problems in cattle, goats, sheep, horses, pigs, poultry, rabbits, dogs, and cats is explained right here in this big (420 pages) single-source reference book. If you own (or intend to own) livestock or pets, consider the Veterinary Guide For Animal Owners as much a necessity for your animals as food and shelter. Hardcover. 71037 $9.95
