A bit...predictable. All the usual seminar/writing workshop stuff: the environment, animal rights, Injuns, and Man (or men--or actually white men) is always the bad guy/person. Particularly ridiculous were "Out Of Place" and the other talking-animals story "Mountain Cage" (aka "A Conversation With Hitler's Dog"). A tedious, pedestrian style--plus a lot of science fiction cliches. This is the kind of stuff that ruined sci-fi for me.
