Scientist Lyall Watson has written the most delightful book about pigs and thier relations. It's called Whole Hog and is a beautifully illustrated, delightfully written book. Watson grew up in South Africa, owner of a pet wart hog. He posits the hyper-intelligent pig as closer to our species than to other cloven hoved creatures. Some may think of Watson as a new agey sort of scientist, not to be taken seriously, but he's all science in this book and readers will find virtually nothing uninteresting about the pigs and hogs Dr. Watson shares with us. The book comes to us from the Smithsonian's own press and carries the stamp of excellent publishing from text to binding.
