Description
Journeying into the heart of the everyday wild, where coyotes, raccoons, chickens, hawks, and humans live in closer proximity than ever before, the author of Crow Planet here brings some compelling questions to light: Whose "home" is this? Where does the wild end and the city begin? And what difference does it make to us as humans in our everyday lives? Lyanda Lynn Haupt blends science, story, myth, and memoir to draw us into the secret realm of the wild creatures that dwell among us in our urban neighborhoods, whether we are aware of them or not. The book includes naturalist drawings and sidebars throughout, on everything from animal tracking to opossum removal.

"An eloquent natural history of urban wildlife, and an insightful rumination on how the human animal has/should/might relate to what Haupt calls the 'new nature.'... Haupt shares her observations from her Seattle home in a personal and engaging voice that moves seamlessly between backyard anecdotes and analysis of their ecological implications."Boston Globe
