Details: Long before the Dog Whisperer, anthropologist Elizabeth Marshall Thomas revealed to readers the nature of pack dynamics, leading to a completely new understanding of dogs and their desires.
In this fascinating account, based on thirty years of living with and observing dogs, we meet Misha, a friend’s husky, whom Thomas followed on his daily rounds of more than 130 square miles, and who ultimately provided the simple and surprising answer to the question What do dogs want most? Not food, not sex, but other dogs. We also meet Maria, who adored Misha, bore his puppies, and clearly mourned when he moved away; the brave pug Bingo and his little wife, Violet; the dingo Viva; and the remaining dogs and pups that constitute the pack.
“Instead of training and obedience, [Thomas] offers as an alternative a world of ‘trust and mutual obligation’” ( *Los Angeles Times Book Review* ). When it was first published in hardcover, *The Hidden Life of Dogs* spent over a year on the *New York Times* Bestseller list. This Mariner paperback edition will include a new afterword by the author.
