History of our highly profitable relationship with sheep; combines anthropology, geography, folklore, linguistics, biology and agriculture. Wool has been of prime importance throughout man’s history, from ancient Babylonia (‘Land of Wool’) to modern Australia, and a major theme of this book is the author’s own research in the variety of fleeces developed by selective breeding.
