Description

Curious by Nature showcases Candace Savage's exploration of the varied ways we relate to wildlife, from our retelling of fairytales about the big, bad wolf to our struggles to find a balance between harvesting trees and allowing grizzly bears the space to roam. Creating a livable future for ourselves and for other species calls for both knowledge and love and a deep sense of the value of wildness.

Candace Savage has spent the last 25 years exploring our complex relationships with the natural world: our prejudices, our growing body of scientific knowledge, our awe. This book is a record of Savage's continuing quest to engage readers in a conversation that enriches our lives and the lives of the animals whose stories she tells.

Candace Savage is the author of more than two dozen books, including A Geography of Blood, which won the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction. She divides her time between homes in Eastend and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
