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.
