PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A completely original history, from prehistory to the present, of our innate and universal human need for the companionship of animals. The earliest evidence of a human and a pet can be traced as far back as 26,000 bc in France, where a boy and his ‘canid’ took a walk through a cave, their foot and paw prints preserved together on the muddy cave floor. Written with compassion and humour and drawing on literary, artistic and archaeological evidence, a rich and revealing examination of the when, the how and the why of our connection to animals. With reference to wide-ranging historical sources and the latest scientific thinking on this complex and enthralling subject and suggesting new insights into this most long-standing of all human relationships – the one with their pets.

I have bought this for my friend who absolutely loves dogs to bits. I haven’t given it to her yet as it is a Christmas present but I love it and just know she will. Thank you.
