The Animal Dialogues: Uncommon Encounters in the Wild
The Animal Dialogues
Uncommon Encounters in the Wild
by Craig Childs
Publisher: Back Bay Books, Little, Brown & Company
THE ANIMAL DIALOGUES tells of Craig Childs' own chilling experiences among the grizzlies of the Arctic, sharks off the coast of British Columbia and in the turquoise waters of Central America, jaguars in the bush of northern Mexico, mountain lions, elk, Bighorn Sheep, and others. More than chilling, however, these stories are lyrical, enchanting, and reach beyond what one commonly assumes an ''animal story'' is or should be. THE ANIMAL DIALOGUES is a book about another world that exists alongside our own, an entire realm of languages and interactions that humans rarely get the chance to witness. PRAISE FOR CROSSING PATHS: ''Childs is in the grip of the outside and its persistent wildness....He is skilled din the exigent art of seeing, then translating what he has seen into words. He has carved an important niche for himself as a nature writer.'' --Kirkus Reviews ''Potent....If animals in the world could explain their actions and predatory instincts, they'd choose Childs to interpret these actions to other humans.'' -- Publishers Weekly ''A vivid first-person compendium.'' -- Outside ''Not since Diane Ackerman have I derived so much pleasure from reading the work of a fine naturalist and talented writer.'' -- The River Reporter
