The Slow Food Russian River Book Group will be reading the book The Covenant of the Wild. Why Animals Choose Domestication (1996) by Stephen Budiansky.
Some animal rights advocates argue that eating meat is murder and that pets are slaves. This controversial reappraisal of the human-animal bond, however, argues that domestication of animals is not an act of exploitation but a brilliantly successful evolutionary strategy that has benefited humans and animals alike.

This book is available in the 2nd hand book trade for less than $5. There is one copy in the Sonoma County Public Library System, but not at SSU or the SRJC Library.
