Lightning Down by Tom Clavin

It is a can't-put-down inspiring saga of brave men confronting great evil and great odds against survival.

How to Examine a Wolverine by Philipp Schott, DVM

More Tales from the Accidental Veterinarian // This collection of over 60 stories and essays, drawn from Dr. Schott's 30 years in small animal practice, covers an astonishing breadth of experiences, emotions, and species. Schott has tales of creatures ranging from tiny honeybees to massive Burmese pythons, although the emphasis is on dogs and cats and the interesting, often quirky, people who love them. Schott's candor gives the reader a behind-the-scenes look at a profession that is much admired but often misunderstood.
