This book is for all tortoise connoisseurs all over the world. Most of all to those who have had to answer such questions as: “What is there to look at after you once see a turtle?”, “What good are they?”, “You actually like turtles . . . er…uh. . . . tortoises?”

This book is in layman’s (layperson’s?) language and is written mainly for fun but also to acquaint all of you with the joys, and the headaches, of owning and/or being owned by a bunch of Tortoises.

The main idea for writing this book is that the tortoise could be more misunderstood than almost any other living thing. The hope is that now, there will be more people who realize the needs of tortoises and that these tortoises will be healthier and happier.

The information contained in this book is only what Kay Arneberg Booth has done and what has worked for her through the years. It is solely to guide the novice tortoise fancier in how to keep and enjoy the company of a tortoise with the best interests of the tortoise at heart.
