An Illustrated History
Tamsin Pickeral, Photography by Astrid Harrisson - All books by this author

This beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated book explores the colorful and enduring bond that has existed between human beings and dogs for millennia. Itís a relationship that dates back some 14,000 years, marked by many momentous events—dogs following or leading men into battle. . . dogs rescuing men, women, and children from scenes of disaster. . . dogs seated on the laps of emperors. . . and dogs working in the fields with farmers and shepherds. Here are accounts of dogs in ancient Rome and in cultures of the Far East; the breeding of hunting dogs from the Middle Ages to the present day; the emergence of dog breed societies; the bravery of working police, military, and rescue dogs; and the development of guide dogs for the blind and infirm. Here too are illustrated descriptions of virtually all major breeds, arranged in categories that include:
  • Sight Hounds
  • Spitz-type Dogs
  • Mastiff Breeds
  • Guard Dogs and Herding Dogs
  • Scent Hounds
  • Gun Dog Breeds
  • Terrier Breeds
  • and Toy Dogs and Companion Breeds
The Spirit of the Dog promises to be a treasured addition to the bookshelf of many devoted dog lovers. Printed throughout in full color, it features more than 400 magnificent photos and illustrations.
