About this book

Language: German

This copiously illustrated standard work deals for the first time with all indigenous farm animals of the Alpine arc. The author spent two years travelling around the various Alpine regions, seeking out the original distribution areas and talking with breeders.

The reader follows him to visit the last herding dogs native to Eastern Tyrol and Savoy, Évolène cattle – the smallest Alpine cattle – in the Valais, Provençal donkeys, the last of the black Alpine pigs and the rare blue goats of Tyrol.

Extensive maps, a detailed history of the former wide variety of Alpine farm animals, interesting facts about conservation status and the history of breeding round off this survey of how the region has been shaped over 7,000 years by mankind and his domestic animals.
