Summary:

From one of the finest nature writers at work in America today-a lyrical, dramatic, illuminating tour of the hidden domain of wild animals.

Whether recalling the experience of being chased through the Grand Canyon by a bighorn sheep, swimming with sharks off the coast of British Columbia, watching a peregrine falcon perform acrobatic stunts at 200 miles per hour, or engaging in a tense face-off with a mountain lion near a desert waterhole, Craig Childs captures the moment so vividly that he puts the reader in his boots.

Each of the forty brief, compelling narratives in The Animal Dialogs focuses on the author's own encounter with a particular species and is replete with astonishing facts about the species' behavior, habitat, breeding, and lifespan. But the glory of each essay lies in Childs's ability to portray the sometimes brutal beauty of the wilderness, to capture the individual essence of wild creatures, to transport the reader beyond the human realm and deep inside the animal kingdom

    Eye-opening, thought-provoking, intelligently written, passing tonnes of life-relevant facts on a subliminal level of well crafted stories woven into individual chapters which like short essays could be consumed on random, back to forth and front to back basis with equal enjoyment. Sharp, gripping at times, humorous (mice and cat tale of survival is epic) and above all beautifully paced by the narrator who knows his stories inside out, being their Author. This book is a perfect journey companion, a lullaby on hot summer nights in an urban jungle, a memento to a dying world of biodiversity and an awe-inspiring contemplation. Worth every penny and so much more, one of the best finds for any biophilic mind that could sit on a bookshelf next to Desert Solitaire and Forest Unseen.
