Media reviews
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
