Description
Framed by her own personal experience with backyard hens, the author of Because the Cat Purrs explores the history of the chicken from its descent from the dinosaurs through the 21st century. En route, Janet Lembke surveys chickens in ancient Greece, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the 19th century, and modern times, and investigates the birds' contributions to science and their jaunty appearances in literature. Eggs receive a chapter of their own, as does chicken cuisine, comprising recipes from the Roman Empire to today's favorites. The more than 100 illustrations include vintage images of the fowls, some remarkable contemporary specimens, and admirers of the bird from throughout history.
