In a cave in France, anthropologists discovered evidence of a boy and his dog taking a walk together nearly 26,000 years ago. Beginning with those preserved foot and paw prints, the author of Red: A History of the Redhead draws on literary, artistic, and archaeological evidence to examine how our relationships with our pets have developed over the millennia, but also stayed very much the same. Through delightful stories of the most famous, endearing, and sometimes eccentric pet owners throughout history, Jacky Colliss Harvey offers fascinating new insights into one of the most long-standing of all human love affairs.
