The Animal's Companion

The Animal's Companion

People & Their Pets, a 26,000-Year Love Story

A New York Times bestselling author’s compelling portrait of the universal human need for animal companions-from dogs and cats to horses, birds, and snakes.

In THE ANIMAL’S COMPANION, acclaimed author of Red: A History of the Redhead, Jacky Colliss Harvey turns her keen eye for cultural investigation and her remarkable story-telling skills to the history of animals as our companions in every-day life. It’s a history that dates back as far as 26,000 years ago to a cave in France where anthropologists have since discovered evidence of a boy and his dog taking a walk together.
From this point forward Colliss Harvey takes us on a sweeping journey through centuries and across continents to examine how our relationships with our pets have developed, but also stayed very much the same. Along the way she shares delightful stories of the most famous, endearing, and sometimes eccentric pet owners throughout history.
