Singing to the Sound
From wolves to salmon, from the great blue Heron to the gray whale, Singing to the Sound is Brenda Peterson's eloquent refrain to the American West. In this book of personal and journalistic essays, Brenda Peterson explores and illuminates the complicated, but essential relationship between humans and animals, between humans and nature. Whether describing her swims with dolphins in the wild; the healing benefits of animal play; or the ongoing battles over hunting wolves and whales, Peterson gives her readers the opportunity to become "other" as she muses and envisions nature, animals and spirit in new ways.
Praise for Singing to the Sound
"It is such empathy for both humans and the natural world that sets this remarkable author apart."
"A Peterson essay can take off like a flock of birds . . . She sings to us about ourselves."
"Each passionate story examines the way humans commune or collide with the natural world, so that a pearl of wisdom is always found beneath the surface. Peterson writes with spiritual maturity and environmental authority."
