Radiant: Farm Animals Up Close and Personal

Traer Scott


Gregarious or shy, curious or placid, playful or retiring, all the animals in Traer Scott’’s newest collection have one thing in common: a sparkling personality!

This whimsical, soulful, and personal photo collection focuses on the lives of the farm animals we often take for granted. Scott introduces us to barnyard animals both familiar and lesser known, from cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens to Dolly the wooly llama, Bianca the Sicilian miniature donkey, Percy the Indian peafowl, and Justice the yak. Some of the animals are kept as pets; others are denizens of farm sanctuaries that Scott has visited. She shares her anecdotes about a Texas longhorn steer whose best friends are a trio of goats, a turkey who likes to snack on grapes and watermelon, and many others.

Lively captions provide information on each breed, to round out this enchanting tribute to our four-legged (and winged) friends from the farm.
