It has been said that much of history before Darwin involved humans working hard to distance themselves from animals. Since then, that trend has abated; in fact, recent studies and memoirs have emphasized our kinship with creatures that our ancestors preferred to regard as alien; few, if any, as touching as this compassionate book by a long-practicing veterinarian. Vint Virga's The Soul of All Living Creatures invites us into the inner lives of animals both domestic and wild. Thus, he writes about the behavior of not only dogs and cats, but also that of whales, wolves, and mice. Coupling his personal observations with the research of others, Virga shows us that animals can indeed teach us vital things about being human.
