Frederick Brown - The City is More Than Human

Seattle would not exist without animals. Animals have played a vital role in shaping the city -- from its founding amid existing indigenous towns, to the livestock-friendly town of the late nineteenth century, and the pet-friendly, livestock-averse modern city. In The City Is More Than Human, Frederick Brown explores the dynamic, troubled relationship humans have with animals. He challenges us to acknowledge the role of animals of all sorts in the making and remaking of cities.
