A Dog in the Cave
The Wolves Who Made Us HumaneBook - 2017
We know dogs are our best animal friends, but have you ever thought about what that might mean?
Combining history, paleontology, biology, and cutting-edge medical science, Kay Frydenborg paints a picture of how two different species became deeply entwined—and how we coevolved into the species we are today.
Fossil evidence shows that we began sharing our lives with dogs much earlier than had been previously thought. With this evidence, a new theory of human and dog coevolution has arisen, and with it a different way to look at our relationship with humankind's best friend. Combining history, paleontology, biology, cutting-edge medical science, and photography, Kay Frydenborg paints a picture of how humans and dogs became so closely entwined—and how we coevolved into the species we are today.
