By: Janet Vorwald Dohner
514 pages, 160 col plates, 80 b/w illus
Features complete information on the history, characteristics, qualities, and traits of 138 endangered livestock breeds (goats, sheep, swine, cattle, horses, and other equines) and 53 poultry breeds (chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese), where these breeds may be seen today and the degree of rarity of each breed in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.
A volume of impressive detail and sweeping scope. Ms. Dohner's book is a persuasive argument against the destruction of our agricultural genetic heritage. It is a welcome American companion to Alderson's The Chance to Survive and deserves the term 'encyclopaedic'. Hans Peter Jorgensen, Director, Agricultural Heritage Tourism Programmes "Dohner makes a valuable contribution to the argument that rare breeds of domestic farm animals are just as important to preserve as wild species." Lyle G. McNeal, founding director, Navajo Sheep Project
