Eyewitness: Dog highlights the evolutionary history of man's best friend -- from their domestication, anatomy, and behavior, for both domestic and wild breeds including wolves, jackals, and foxes. See the oldest-known remains of a domestic dog, an amazing tree-climbing fox, how a dog swims, a fox with bat ears, and a husky in a sled harness. Learn why dogs and wolves hunt in packs, how dogs "talk" with ears and tails, the basics of looking after a pet dog, and how dogs were specially taught to help humans.
For over 25 years, DK's Eyewitness books have been the most trusted nonfiction series in classrooms, libraries, and homes around the world. In summer 2014 this award-winning series will get a fresh new look both inside and out. The introduction of paperback editions, eye-catching jackets, and updated interiors ensure that the Eyewitness series will continue to be relevant in the ever-changing world of education and remain the go-to source for homework help, research projects, reluctant readers, ESL students, and, as always, to satisfy the minds of curious kids.
