Rachel's Blog: An ibex fetish.

Sun, 11 Jan 2004

I'm currently reading A Perfect Harmony: The Intertwining Lives of Animals and Humans Throughout History and it contains the following gem in the chapter on the domestication of goats:

Otherwise it's an interesting book so far. More opinion once I've finished it.
