Dog's Best Friend

A Brief History of an Unbreakable Bond

Simon Garfield

Some 8,000 years after the earliest visual evidence of the domestic dog – carved into rocks in Saudi Arabia – the creature has become an integral part of human life. A celebration of dogs ‘in all their intelligence, curiosity, beauty and loyalty’, Simon Garfield’s historical survey takes in Charles Darwin’s fascination with them, the royal corgis and the first labradoodle while also exploring the roots of the human-dog connection. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on upper or lower trimmed edge.
