  The Cairn Terrier by Christine Carter Copyright 1995 T.F.H. Publications Inc.
Written by a well-known Breeder, Exhibitor, and Judge of the Cairn, this well-written book traces the history of the Breed, describes the Cairn in detail, and includes extensive material regarding the owning and care of a Cairn. This book contains many full-color photographs and illustrations.

If you're only going to buy one book on the Cairn Terrier, this is our recommendation.

  The NEW Complete Cairn Terrier 2nd Edition by John T. Marvin Copyright 1986, 1975 Howell Book House Inc.
For a number of years this was the standard reference work on the Breed. It is well-written, comprehensive, and covers much of the material in the Carter book. There are some differences, though, that are of interest to the Cairn Owner. Although slightly dated today, it remains one of the best references on the Breed.

  The Cairn Terrier by JWH Benyon, Alex Fisher, Peggy Wilson. Revised by Doreen Proudlock Copyright 1929, 1950 JWH Benyon Copyright 1986, 1975 Howell Book House Inc
This book, published in England, has gone through numerous revision since its first printing in 1929. It presents a classic coverage of the Breed in Britain from its earliest roots up to the 1950's. It remains a valuable reference work for the serious Cairn Terrier Fancier.

  How to raise and train a Cairn Terrier by Erliss McCormack Copyright 1965 TFH Publications, Inc.
A superficial overview of the breed. This short book may be used as an introduction to Cairn Terriers and to dog owning in general. It is not in the same class as the preceding books.

  The Working Terrier by D. Brian Plummer Copyright David Brian Plummer 1978
Although little of this book pertains directly to the Cairn Terrier, it is a very useful book in that it explores the subject of working Terriers to hunt quarry. Unlike the other books, it gives the reader a feel for the personality of the Cairn and other Terriers and how those characteristics helped them to perform their work.
