Today’s guest, author Sy Montgomery, writes that “we are on the cusp of either destroying the sweet green earth, or revolutionizing the way we understand the rest of animate creation.
“It’s an important time to be writing about the connections we share with our fellow creatures,” she adds, saying, “It’s a great time to be alive.”
In 33 books for adults and children, including her latest, “The Hawk’s Way,” she’s made connecting with our fellow creatures her life’s work, and celebrated those connections. She has explored connections to a range of animals, not just obvious ones like dogs, but from tarantulas to octopuses, pigs, and more.
In her just-out book “The Hawk’s Way,” it’s the birds that she calls “the tigers of the air,” raptors, the birds of prey that she explores.
