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.
