Overview

Excerpt from The Dominion of Man

What is signified by Dominion? - Its various manifestations - The power to kill and the power to tame - Primitive man and the contemporary animals - The mastodon - Mammoth and elephant - The primitive horse - Ancient artists - Modern horses - Traction and burden - The horse a beast of chase - The Stone Age of the present day - Ethnology and Zoology - The Australian compared with the Indian and negro.

As far as we know, there has never existed any race of mankind which has not in some way exercised that dominion over the lower animals to which man is entitled by virtue of his birth.

Even among the earliest pre-historic races there is sufficient evidence to show that, although the wild animals which existed in those remote ages were larger, more powerful, more numerous, and, in all probability, more formidable antagonists than any which are found at the present day, man could not only cope with them but overcome them.
