Always longing to be at one with animals, he is not afraid to climb an aspen to see the world from a porcupine's perspective, run with a herd of elk, or wonder how it would feel to jump from a plane and fly with a bald eagle. Childs' captivating essays, rich in sensuous imagery (the porcupine looks like a mop, a bundle of ponderosa pine needles, a mobile hairstyle), are hauntingly beautiful and replete with evocative observations of animal life.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

These kinds of encounters might not be all that unusual for anyone who has spent plenty of time in the wild, especially in Alaska, Canada, and the American West, where predators still roam. The takeaway, for folks who spend most of their time in the concrete canyons or the sprawling suburbs, is that wildness is still out there. Childs is a good writer, and this book is recommended as an interesting read.
