About this book

The survival of wildlife on this planet depends on animals' relationships with the people who share their natural habitat and influence its management. Nature writer Candace Savage has spent the last 25 years exploring humankind's complex relationships with the natural world. This thoughtful collection showcases Savage's exploration of the varied ways people relate to wildlife, from retelling fairytales about the big, bad wolf; to being surprised by the intellectual capacity of crows; to struggling to find a balance between harvesting trees and allowing grizzly bears the space to roam. Savage is particularly interested in bridging the gap between mythology and science. A constructive approach to the human-wildlife relationship, she says, lies in integrating reason and emotion and recognizing people's connections with the natural world. This book is a record of Savage's lifelong quest to engage readers in a conversation that enriches our lives and the lives of the animals whose stories she tells.
