Farmyard animals may hold critical keys for our survival, Jan Dohner warns, and with each extinction, genetic traits of potentially vital importance to our agricultural future or to medical progress are forever lost.

This amazing work and Michael Ryder's Sheep and Man are the places I go first for overviews of sheep-breed history, a special interest of mine. Of course it doesn't cover all breeds; it would have been too heavy to lift and never would have been finished. The ones included have been wisely selected and carefully discussed.

Thorough and informative on the breeds covered; not as thorough in covering breeds. Of course, I only looked at the chicken section...
