Chapter Summary

In this chapter the author talks about five different types of animals in Spain namely dogs, bulls, cranes, cats and pigeons. Dogs' best embody the claim of animals upon us. At times during four months in Spain the author felt explanations for bullfighting could be neatly divided into two: those who saw the bull as a god and those who saw it as a victim. The most enduring relation the author had with animals in Spain was with cranes, for which the ancient university town is famous. Of course there is every geographical reason why these cranes are as peculiar to Spain as the panda is to China or the kola bear is to Australia.
