Humans have long held dominion over animals. But have we created friends, or deadly enemies, throughout our ancient association? Author Donald J. Sobol has collected twelve stories written by masters of science fiction and fantasy, reflecting our fascination with the creatures of the earth. The range of characters is broad - from a predatory wolf who becomes a man to an amusing talking bear named Johnny; from the last dinosaur in a world ruled by humans to the last man in a world re-taken by animals; from a too-trusting mouse to an ominously large ant.

This anthology is for everyone who has ever wondered what lies behind the eyes of a benign household pet or wondereed what the dolphins would really say to us if we could communicate. The inhabitants of these short stories live in worlds rich with possibilities - and danger.
