About the Author:

Sian Hall was born in Kitwe Zambia. She obtained her BA (Hons) in Anthropology in English Literature at Rhodes University, and is presently a Ph.D candidate in Anthropology at the same university. Sian has had a life-long interest in the indigenous dogs of Africa, an interest which her family kept some of these little known breeds as pets. In 1990 she initiated a project aimed at researching and promoting the various popular articles and contributed to television programs on this topic.

Sian is also a writer having produced books on various topics. She is the owner of six Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
