Ten Species That Changed Our WorldBook - 2018
In Tamed, Alice Roberts uncovers the deep history of ten familiar species with incredible wild pasts, dogs, apples and wheat; cattle, potatoes and chickens; rice, maize and horses and, finally, humans. She reveals how becoming part of our world changed these animals and plants, and shows how they became our allies, essential to the survival and success of our own species. Enlightening, wide-ranging and endlessly fascinating, Tamed encompasses thousands of years of history and archaeology alongside cutting-edge genetics and anthropology. Yet it is also a deeply personal journey that changes how we see ourselves and the species on which we have left our mark.
