Shelburne veterinarian launches new book

WRP publishes “Exotic Tails: A Veterinarian’s Journey”

Shelburne Vineyard was alight last Sunday evening with the bright warmth of fans and friends of Shelburne resident and retired veterinarian, Dr. Steven Metz, as Wind Ridge Publishing toasted the release of his new book “Exotic Tails: A Veterinarian’s Journey.” The book’s title refers to Dr. Metz’s remarkable determination in overcoming all odds to become a veterinary practitioner.

A young and upcoming Vermont cartoonist, Iona Woolmington, created the book’s cover illustrations, including depictions of several of the exotic animals Metz has treated over the course of his career.

The evening featured an expressive reading by Dr. Metz, Cloud 9 Caterers appetizers, award-winning Shelburne Vineyard wine, and engaging banter.

With wit and an observant eye, Metz delights us with his accounts of a cast of unforgettable characters from the animal kingdom; “Exotic Tails” is a must-read for animal lovers of all ages.

“Exotic Tails” can be purchased locally at The Flying Pig Bookstore in Shelburne. For more information, please contact Wind Ridge Publishing at 985-3091 or visit
