KIRKUS REVIEW

The author roams with ease from pre-history down to the present, giving a clear picture of various animals-- how they have helped man, and how man has changed them to suit his needs. Mr. McCoy gives the most attention to dogs: their ancestry, the classification of work fields, and natural and developed breeds. He then turns to discussions of cats, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, camels, llamas and others. Much encyclopedic information is presented clearly by an author who knows animals and has written effectively before about them in Lords of the Sky (1963, p. 314, J-108)
