Given as gifts to royalty, revered as a religious symbol, used as a food source, and displayed as a show of status by most of the world's civilizations, chickens are inexorably linked to human history. Join journalist Andrew Lawler as he traces the chicken's legacy from its genetic originator, the shy and skittish Red Jungle Fowl of Asia, to hundreds of breeds found in farms and factories across the globe. On this journey through ancient civilizations and modern society, you'll delight in learning about this often-overlooked yet oh-so-important bird - and the people who rely on it. Who knew chickens could be so interesting? (SM)
