Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This intiguing book examines in fascinating detail the relationship between people and domesticated cattle, a resource that has been vital to civilization but long taken for granted.
An informal social history rich and surprising of the centuries old relationship between cows and humans. A far from humdrum book it will open even jaundiced eyes. Larry McMurtry
