Vavra brings out the true emotions of the unicorns.
Siren
The photos are beautiful and the poetry is a nice touch, and the information in the back of the book is very interesting and includes some history of unicorns as well.

I would recomend this book to anyone who loves unicorns, and would like to learn more of them.

Format: Hardcover
I got this book back when it first came out (it is even signed by Robert Vavra) and I love it. Although they use horses to portray the unicorns, (in an article I read, Vavra comments on the questions he gets about how the horns stay on, but later states that he doesn't think it really matters if they are false horns, but the magic of the animal.) He tells a story of a horse that ran off during a photo shoot, and ended up near a road. At that moment, a schoolbus full of children drove by, and then stopped. All the kids and the bus driver watched in amazement, thinking it was really a unicorn. Vavra and his assistants hid in the bushes, quite enjoying themselves. This book is a wonderful collection on beautiful photographs and the poems and quotes used describe the feelings of those photos. If you love the lure of the unicorn, the beauty of horses, or just great photographs, then buy this book.

This is a book to be kept as a ''treasure'' amongst all books in anyone library. It's a fascinating book non only for ''horse lover'' (Robert Vavra is very well known by horse enthusiast worldwide) this is a book that can fascinate anyone in love with BEAUTY, ART, and POETRY. All photos are surrounded by a magical athmosphere and they are enriched and completed by beautiful literary quotations. You start dreaming from the first page of the book till the very last one and when you are at the end of your reading, believe me! You will start to BELIEVE that UNICORN DOES REALLY EXIST!

I'm a True Believer of Unicorns. As a Unicorn Fanatical child I even entertained notions I might be one. As an adult, I can't bring myself to DISbelieve in them. They are, to me, the epiphany of the beauty and magik and perfection the world has to offer - they are the embodiment of it. And yet - and yet - it is hard to find a modern representation of them which doesn't overdo the glitter and the rainbows, attribute human characteristics and sloppy sentimentality to the Beasts. Sick of the tacky, trendy new-age representations of Unicorns in the world today, Vavra's book was a blessing when I received it as a Christmas gift last year. Beautiful, glorious, heart warming, faith-inspiring pictures of Unicorns in their natural habitats, free from unncessary sparkles and glittery adornment, wild and Free as all Unicorns Should Be. Accompanied by Unicorn text from a multitude of sources, from thousands of years ago to the very present. And always, the encouragement to BELIEVE. Oh I do believe! This book is a perfect gift for anyone who feel the magik of the Unicorn, young and old alike. It will fill your heart with hope and faith and that perfect wonder which comes over us when our imaginations have been stirred...
My heart felt as though it would break upon reading then, at this page, Vavra talking about such details as how they kept the horns stuck on the horses :( Then it occured to me...
Maybe he just wants us to THINK they were really horses, so that noone tries to hunt them down...to protect them and keep them sacred. To keep them Free.

Format: Hardcover
This gorgeous book is one of the finest unicorn books I own. It has great pictures and lots of unicorn details and a unicorn searching guide. It is worth buying if you like unicorns or photography. It is worth getting Unicorn of Kilimanjaro or the Calendar if you can find them as well. It is on my list of favorite all time books, and i see a lot of them as i work at a bookstore. By this if you or someone you love likes unicorns and give the gift of magic.

Format: Hardcover
My uncle bought me this book when I was seven, almost sixteen years ago. I adored it as a child and I still completely enjoy looking through it now. It is singularly the best book I have ever seen about unicorns, and I have spent an extensive amount of time looking. The pictures are completely realistic and lavish. They carry you away into a world that you can only dream about. Not one page of this book is wasted--from the pictures to the details and data about unicorns in the back of the book. If you are intrigued by unicorns, this book is a must have; you will not regret buying this, or if you know someone who loves unicorns, you could not get them a better gift. It is a work of art from cover to cover.

I read this book years ago when it first came out and I still have not found one to match it. It truly reinforces the believers of unicorns and perhaps makes the non-believers think twice. It is a beautiful and magical look into the unicorns world.

Format: Hardcover
This book by Robert Vavra portrays the unicorns as how they are. Peaceful, intimate, distant, yet very close. The only difference between the images in this book and the rat race that life is somehow pushed into, is the lucid dream state of mind that is turned on when reading this book. It will bring you there. A very thorough, and colorful view into the unicorns themselves. The question might be raised whether they are real or not,...........but after viewing the pictures, your mind will wander to a place of mossy lichens, willow trees, and cushion plants, and georgous animals that mystify.,.. A very good book that everyone from children to the elderly will adore. It has one particular image that caught my eye more than the others; It was the picture at sunset with the whole group of unicorns on the beach,...........simply breathtaking.......This book will enlighten all who view it. Peace,.........Onepath
