Summary, etc.:
Although camels are popularly portrayed as beasts of burden, they've provided people with a variety of resources throughout history, including milk, meat, and fiber. The thick, golden brown hair of camels has been used to make blankets, rugs, and clothing for hundreds of years. This fascinating book about camels and their wool invites readers to take a fresh look at this familiar domesticated species. This thorough examination of life science in action supports curricular science studies.
