Tamed and Untameda collection of essays penned by two of the world's most celebrated animal writers, Sy Montgomery and Elizabeth Marshall Thomasexplores the minds, lives, and mysteries of animals as diverse as snails, house cats, hawks, sharks, dogs, lions, and even octopuses.
Drawing on stories of animals both wild and domestic, the two authors, also best friends, created this book to put humans back into the animal world. The more we learn about what other animals think and do, they explain, the more we understand ourselves as animals, too. Writes Montgomery, The list of attributes once thought to be unique to our speciesfrom using tools to waging waris not only rapidly shrinking, but starting to sound less and less impressive when we compare them with other animals powers.
With humor, empathy, and introspection, Montgomery and Thomas look into the lives of all kinds of creaturesfrom mans best friend to the great white sharkand examine the ways we connect with our fellow species. Both authors have devoted their lives to sharing the animal kingdoms magic with others, and their combined wisdom is an indispensable contribution to the field of animal literature.
The book contains a foreword by Vicki Constantine Croke, author of the bestseller Elephant Company.
