About this product
- DescriptionIn this fun and thought-provoking book, historian and animal enthusiast Boria Sax argues for a classification of animals that goes beyond the biological to encompass a more meaningful distinction: tradition. From ants and elephants to tigers and tortoises, The Mythical Zoo weaves together a crosscultural tapestry encompassing mythology, history, art, science, philosophy, and literature. The result is a beautifully illustrated, masterfully composed love letter to the animal kingdom.
- Author BiographyBoria Sax is the award-winning author of City of Ravens (available from Overlook) and Animals of the Third Reich. His books have been translated into eight languages. He lives in White Plains, New York.
