First thought to be divine, animals have played an active role in human culture since prehistoric times. Even today, animals wield symbolic powers as varied as the cultures that embrace them. From ants and elephants to tigers and wrens, the 75 conversational entries in this volume weave together a cross-cultural tapestry encompassing mythology, history, art, science, philosophy and literature while discussing the special significance of animals in human cultures.
