Summary:
"When we think of the key figures of early American history, we think of explorers, or pilgrims, or Native Americans - not cattle, or goats, or swine. But as Virginia DeJohn Anderson reveals in this brilliantly original account of colonists in New England and the Chesapeake region, livestock played a vitally important role in the settling of the new world."--Jacket.
