An engaging, totally fascinating account of how pigs fueled the growth of human civilization.

Far from a dry biological or historical tract, author Mark Essig takes the reader on a compelling journey, spanning thousands of years, through the many vital and unexpected links between human civilization and domestic swine. Told with wit, humor and keen insight, you’ll never look at America’s favorite food animal the same way again!
