From the Publisher:
THE ANIMAL DIALOGUES tells of Craig Childs' own chilling experiences among the grizzlies of the Arctic, sharks off the coast of British Columbia and in the turquoise waters of Central America, jaguars in the bush of northern Mexico, mountain lions, elk, Bighorn Sheep, and others. More than chilling, however, these stories are lyrical, enchanting, and reach beyond what one commonly assumes an "animal story" is or should be. THE ANIMAL DIALOGUES is a book about another world that exists alongside our own, an entire realm of languages and interactions that humans rarely get the chance to witness.
Annotation:
In this compelling collection of essays about animal encounters, naturalist Craig Childs reveals how he communes with beasts, birds, and bugs. Childs focuses on his developing ability to communicate with the creatures on their own level, by using subtle gestures, body posture, and eye movement. Some of his more memorable interactions include swimming (cage-free) with sharks, startling a mountain lion, pursuing a porcupine up a tree, and fending off a feisty raccoon that refuses to be rescued.
