Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scientists, artists, activists, philosophers, lawyers, and spiritual leaders share their intensely personal experiences and ponder on the meaning and import of human/animal relationships. From prairie dogs, donkeys and squid to Best Friends Sanctuary's dogs and cats, the contributors tell of a wide variety of insightful encounters with animals. Jane Goodall recalls how her lifelong commitment to animals began with a fateful childhood meeting with a dragonfly. Homeless veterans find healing with the parrots of Serenity Park. Musician Jim Nollan plays the waterphone for an audience of orcas. Our understanding of animals has increased greatly in just the last few years. Kinship with Animals Updated Edition contains new research findings and new contributors. Wesley the Owl saves a woman's life. A rescued whale shows his gratitude. Lawyer Jody Weiner muses on Koko the Gorilla's sexual harassment lawsuit. Dave Soldier designs instruments for the Thai Elephant Orchestra.
