    This is book is just such an awesome idea! There should be one written for every state! Of course, not every state can is as diverse with their zoos/sanctuaries/ranches/etc as North Carolina. ;) That said, this book is a good idea for anyone who is interested in visiting zoos or facilities like zoos where you get to have some sort of animal experience. It's a good reference guide for people who live in NC and for people who are just visiting! The book is split up into three sections (the same th This is book is just such an awesome idea! There should be one written for every state! Of course, not every state can is as diverse with their zoos/sanctuaries/ranches/etc as North Carolina. ;) That said, this book is a good idea for anyone who is interested in visiting zoos or facilities like zoos where you get to have some sort of animal experience. It's a good reference guide for people who live in NC and for people who are just visiting! The book is split up into three sections (the same three sections that NC is split into), the mountains, the Piedmont and the coast. In each section the author details different places you can go to experience animals, she lists the names, addresses, hours, directions to these places and a little bit about the history and what you can experience at the facility. A really helpful feature of this book is that the author points out specific directions for places that might be hard for a GPS to get you to, which can definitely be a problem with some of these places. A few of the places that I found most interesting were: The Western North Carolina Nature Center (I'm from this area and have been here many times, it's a very nice little nature center, their wolf exhibits are awesome!) The Lazy 5 Ranch in Mooresville (I've also been here. This place is an amazing experience!) Carolina Raptor Center (Always wanted to go here.) Natural Science Center of Greensboro (The zoo part is Animal Discovery, this place is really high quality zoo. It is small but that have a lot of really nice exhibits and a nice animal collection. The giant anteater and the gibbons are my favorite!) Of course the NC Zoo- This is amazing zoo, they have a great set-up and lots of naturalistic exhibits. They are also very involved in zoo horticulture and managing endangered plants as well as animals. Conservators' Center- A refuge for many different kinds of animals such as: lions, tigers, wolves, lemurs, binturongs, etc. This place sounds like it would be a very interesting place to visit! DUKE LEMUR CENTER- This is on my bucket list. I would LOVE to go hear and experience all of the different lemur/other prosimian species! It just sounds like such an amazing facility! Durham Museum of Life and Science- Very interesting and well-maintained facility. Their exhibits are very naturalistic and seem to be great environments for the animals. The keepers and staff here are also very helpful and will answer any questions you may have or give great keeper talks! A really interesting exhibit this Museum has is the Butterfly house and the Insectarium! Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park- Have a variety of waterfowl species, many of them are rare or endangered. Would love to go here too! Cape Fear Serpentarium- Rare venomous snakes! Red Wolf Howling Safaris- Only place to see/hear red wolves in the wild! Wild Horses of Corolla There are also many other places mentioned in the book that would be a great way to spend your time if your like me and always look for the nearest animal experience!

    The title pretty much explains what this book is about. It features 2-3 page informative articles on a wide variety of "animal adventures" in North Carolina. There are all sorts of ways to meet and greet animals listed here--zoos, science centers, farms, animal sanctuaries, aquariums, and even more unusual experiences like golf courses that use llama caddies.

The author provides useful information such as opening hours and tips to enjoy your visit. The book is arranged geographically so that it's easy to see which sites are close to others, and there are sections on the mountains, piedmont, and coastal region. I'm an NC native, but I had never heard of a lot of these opportunities and look forward to checking out some of them. There are some interesting animal-related experiences to be had out there! I would mostly recommend this book to NC residents who have already done the most obvious stuff and want new ideas, but also maybe to visitors who have an interest in animals.

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.
