In this collection about “man's best friend” Tor Åge Bringsværd takes us through thousands of years of tales and myths about how those with two-legs and four-legs have lived together. Religion, philosophy, adventure and humor – in dog-stories from five continents, and ten thousand years of cohabitation. A dog's eyes reflect humanity itself, and WOOF is the perfect gift book for anyone who either has a dog, or likes dogs, or just likes adventures and stories about ourselves and how we became what we are – through interaction with this four-legged loyal friend. Richly illustrated. An old American-Indian saying goes: “God created the earth, the sky and the water, the moon and the sun. He created the people and the birds and animals. But he did not create the dog - because he already had one.”
Tor Åge Bringsværd (1939–) has received many awards, as a writer and as a playwright. His works have been translated into 23 languages and his theatrical works have been staged in twelve countries. Bringsværd writes for all ages.
