Lapham has carefully read this book, because he doesn’t just focus on the dog origin information that is the main focus of the text.
He gets Derr to discuss other parts of the book, which are just as interesting. They discuss (among other things) the origins of dog breeds– the “water curs of Newfoundland” caught my ears– and how the ancients used dogs in war.
Lots of good stuff.
