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.
