Roger A. Caras's exhilarating exploration of the enduring ties between man and beast brings to light the far reaching impact domesticated animals have had on the course of human civilization.
Spanning centuries of history, Caras discusses in fascinating detail such events as the domestication of goats and sheep, which led to the birth of agriculture by enabling wandering tribes to settle in one place. He writes of the role of the camel in bringing about the meeting of Eastern and Western cultures. The aid horses, donkeys, and other beasts of burden have given in everything from construction to transportation, vastly reducing human toil and hardship; and the often underestimated contributions of the dog, who has served not only as a faithful friend, but as a diligent herder, hunter, and guard.
Roger Caras is past president of the ASPCA and has written more than sixty books on pets and wildlife.
