A Dog in the Cave: The Wolves Who Made Us Human

by Kay Frydenborg

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.
