Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?: The Epic Saga of the Bird that Powers Civilization by Andrew Lawler

Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?: The Epic Saga of the Bird that Powers Civilization is a masterful combination of historical sleuthing and journalistic exploration on four continents.  In it Andrew Lawler reframes the way we feel and think about our most important animal partner - the chicken - and, by extension, all domesticated animals, and even nature itself.
