Cities like Seattle would not exist without animals. Although usually absent from history books, creatures such as cows, horses, chickens, dogs, and salmon have played crucial roles in struggles over property and power in the changing city. They have accompanied humans on their urban journey as property, as symbols, and as friends.

Frederick L. Brown holds a Ph.D. in history from the University of Washington and works on as an independent historian and book indexer in Seattle. The City is More Than Human won the 2017 Hal K. Rothman book prize from the Western History Association or best new book in Western environmental history.
