Dawn of the Dog: The Genesis of a Natural Species will transform your appreciation of the dog. Author Janice Koler-Matznick, a biologist specializing in dog behavior, proposes the dog ancestor was not the gray wolf as commonly believed. Part I builds the case that the dog is a unique species, one we have been misunderstanding. The science supporting this idea is served in bite-size pieces using everyday language, and there is an extensive bibliography for those who want to dig deeper. Part II features information about and photos of some of the last remaining natural dogs, the dingoes and ancient aboriginal dogs. 266 pp. /128 color photographs.
