The Chance to Survive Summary

The Chance to Survive by Lawrence Alderson

Many of the old and beautiful breeds of domestic livestock are seriously endangered, and some have come perilously close to extinction. This book traces their history and fluctuating fortunes, and plots their place in the future. The author travelled widely to research the book and pictures of the last pure-bred animal of some breeds, such as the Garfagnina, the Fribourgeois and the Norfolk Horn, are included. Breeds such as the White Park cattle, which probably were sacrificed by the Druids, the Soay sheep, from the St Kilda Islands beyond the Outer Hebrides, the Texas Longhorn, and the Caspian horse, are an integral part of our history and heritage. Their survival is a matter of priority, and this book dicusses a policy to secure their qualities for succeeding generations.
