Migrating northward from South and Central America more than a hundred years ago, this strange-looking animal can be readily identified by its tough, scale-like coat of armor, elongated snout, and its propensity for doing battle with eighteen-wheel vehicles on America's highways. Despite its lemming-like compulsion for self-destruction, the armadillo survives in large numbers and, as this volume duly records, continues to impose its presence on modern society. Paperback.
Winston Churchill once said: “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down. Pigs treat us as equals.” This may be one reason for many people’s fascination with pigs, but a more likely reason might be the long history of nearness to them. In America, less than a century ago, there were family farms where people raised, among other things, livestock for market and for the family’s consumption. Nearly all of these family farms raised a litter or two of pigs. When pigs live near, they are always in the imagination. Natural escape artists, smart and quick-witted, full of personality, pigs invite comparisons to humans. Hardcover.
