Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book presents answers to questions such as how to speak of animals, where are animals to be found, and where is their refuge. Early in Philip K. Dick's famous science fiction novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? the hero, Rick Deckard, walks over to the animal "collection" of a large corporation. The first animal Deckard sees is a raccoon. A number of films about animals are herein discussed. There's a lovely moment in the famous children's book, Rascal, by Sterling North. The chapter presents an overview of how other chapters of the book are organised.
