Bronwen Dickey is the author of Pit Bull: The Battle Over An American Icon, a book that has received plenty of positive reviews and critical praise, and a little bit of controversy due to its subject matter.
Bronwen spent several years to research and to write this book, and during our conversation she shares some revealing insights into the nature of pit bulls and of people.
If you want to learn more about Bronwen Dickey, her book Pit Bull, and see some wonderful photos, go to our show notes at http://thisispawprint.com/71.
Karen Delise, whom we discuss briefly, is mentioned in more detail in Pit Bull: The Battle Over An American Icon. She was one of the first to attempt to gain a fuller understanding of dog bite related fatalities. Karen has written two books on the subject, Fatal Dog Attacks and The Pit Bull Placebo, and founded the National Canine Research Council.
Thanks to Peter Zheutlin for connecting us with Bronwen. He was a previous guest on Pawprint, and is author of the NY Times Bestseller, Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and a Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway.
