Product Description

Publishers Note :Filled with illustrations reflecting the whimsy, the devotion, and the commerce that have shaped centuries of American pet keeping, a portrait of Americans' relationships with animals shows how the history of pets has evolved alongside changing ideas about human nature, child development, and community life.Muze Annotation :Katherine Grier provides a wonderfully detailed history of pet animals in the United States dating from the mid-19th century to 1940. The book is filled with interesting tidbits, historical inquiry, and a bevy of fascinating images. Tracing the transformation of working animals into beloved companions, Grier uses a variety of original texts to discover how families cared for their animals and interacted with them. Examining both sweet and sorrowful stories, she follows the "ethics of kindness," the growth of pet stores, and much more. With B&W historical photographs, paintings, prints, and other illustrations.
