Read in October, 2009

This was recommended to me by a journalist who have covered environmental issues after I ranted to him about wolf hunting.

Lopez has an amazing way of creating a sense of place. The best messages I found were at the end: we have much to learn from observing truly-wild animals in their natural environment.

I got a little weighed down in the natural history aspect, much as I did with "The World Without Us." As with that book, I am sure it is more about my lack of knowledge and interest than the author's skill.

I also found words I had to look up in Lopez's book. My favorite:
crepuscular.

Back to Dostoevsky!
