Singing to the Sound: Visions of Nature, Animals, and Spirit
In sensuous prose that evokes the mist and mystery of the Pacific Northwest, noted nature writer Brenda Peterson chronicles 20 years of living on Puget Sound, allowing a range of marine creatures the full light of her powerful observations and asking readers to look at land, waters, and wildlife in new ways. In a major essay, Peterson takes readers behind the scenes of the controversial Makah whale hunt, where she served as mediator between environmentalists and tribal whaling families. Other essays cover a dramatic river-rafting journey down the Colorado River, the ongoing war against wolves, the impending extinction of salmon, and the healing powers of animal play.
