Description
How did we get a tiny chihuahua from a wild wolf? When was the first horse ride? What kind of animal can help us to clean up the environment? These and other questions are answered in this book that begins with the dog, the first animal to be domesticated. The book explains how, first by taming and then by selective breeding, humans created many different dogs to suit their purposes. It then goes on to show the ways in which humans and animals have worked together throughout history.
