The Intimate Bond by Brian Fagan

This book's full title is "The Intimate Bond: How Animals Shaped Human History". This is an interesting book about our relationship with animals and it is a good overview of our history and relationships with domesticated animals. The author, Brian Fagan has his own Website.

I had not realized how important the donkey was to early history or how much the camel changed once it too was domesticated. The camel was apparently the eighth animal to be domesticated after the wolf (dog), goats, sheep, pigs, cattle, donkey and horse. Our relationship to our domesticated animals has changed much over time.

The Good Reads site again provides various reviews at various levels. There is a short review at Kirkus Reviews. There really is not much in the way of reviews on this book.

There is an interview with Brian Fagan on another book of his at South Dakota Humanities Council called The Attacking Ocean. In another video Brian Fagan talks about the last great warming.

An index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. I have three blogs. The first talks only about specific stocks and is called Investment Talk . The second one contains information on mostly investing and is called Investing Economics Mostly. My last blog is for my book reviews and it is called Non-Fiction Mostly. Follow me on Twitter.
