From the dawn of existence, animals and humans have been constantly redefining their relationship with one another. Brian Fagan unfolds this fascinating story from the first world, animals that wandered into our prehistoric ancestors’ camp and found companionship to the industrial age when some animals became commodities and others became pets. Through an in-depth analysis of six truly transformative human-animal relationships, Fagan shows how our habits and way of life are altered by our bond with animals. Among other stories, Fagan explores how herding changed human behavior and how the horse carried a hearty band of nomads across the world and toppled the emperor of China.
