A Dog in the Cave
The Wolves Who Made Us Human
We know dogs are our best animal friends, but have you ever thought about what that might mean?
Combining history, paleontology, biology, and cutting-edge medical science, Kay Frydenborg paints a picture of how two different species became deeply entwined—and how we coevolved into the species we are today.
