Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Though women have long felt kinship with animals, in the past, they seldom participated in the study of them. Now, as more women make animals the subject of their investigations, significant new ideas are emerging — based on the premise that animals are honored co-sharers of the earth. This unprecedented anthology features original stories, essays, meditations, and poems by a vast array of women nature writers and field scientists, including:

Diane Ackerman, Virginia Coyle, Gretel Ehrlich, Dian Fossey, Tess Gallagher, Jane Goodall, Temple Grandin, Susan Griffin, Joy Harjo, Barbara Kingsolver, Ursula Le Guin, Denise Levertov, Linda McCarriston, Susan Chernak McElroy, Rigoberta Menchu, Cynthia Moss, Katherine Payne, Marge Piercy, Pattiann Rogers, Linda Tellington-Jones, Haunani-Kay Trask, Gillian Van Houten, Terry Tempest Williams

Review:

"A phenomenally beautiful book." The Woman's Journal

Review:

"A splendid, multihued collection....These are, indeed, stories of an intimate nature: sensuous, unsparing, carefully mulled, razor sharp." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"In this groundbreaking book is found the comfort of reading our own hearts, of finding our own family within the vast unknown of our earthly home." NAPRA ReView

Review:

"A celebration of compassion....Women are opening new ways of communicating with and understanding the animal world." The Seattle Times
