Famed wildlife photographer Art Wolfe has chosen one hundred of his favorite photographs of dogs- including shots from every continent of the world-and teamed up with bestselling animal writer Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson to create a remarkable book that will be treasured by dog lovers far and wide. From Tibet to New York City, from Mongolia to Paris, Peru, and Ghana-in fact everywhere on earth, we see dogs living with humans in a kind of intimacy not found with any other animal. It is impossible to view these astonishing photographs without agreeing with Masson and Wolfe that there is no other relationship in nature quite like that between dogs and humans. The renowned author of Dogs Never Lie About Love offers deep insight into that relationship. For fifteen thousand years, Masson tells us, humans have encouraged dogs to become part of our lives, because we like being around them. And they, too, like being around us. As Masson points out, dogs don't care about our status, our color, our ethnicity; the biases, prejudices, and presuppositions of humans are foreign to dogs. Our cross-species friendship is a universal relationship that cuts across all cultures and continents. The mystery of it still defies explanation, but these extraordinary photographs reveal that its uniqueness is understood throughout the world.


Praise for Dogs Make Us Human:
