BONUS: This edition contains a new afterword and an excerpt from Gwen Cooper's ONCE IN NINE LIVES, SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS. The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-­week-­old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight. Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.­” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-­pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-­foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles . . .

Ces pages sur la nature et les animaux sont à la fois très lyriques et d’une grande justesse, en particulier lorsqu’il s’agit de décrire leurs mœurs, à la fois familières et étranges. Ami des bêtes (comme Victor Hugo), il en défendra la cause auprès des hommes de son temps.

Darwin consolidated a lifetime of work in On the Origin of Species, compiling his discoveries from the voyage of the Beagle, his experiments, research and correspondence. He argues for the transmutation of species over time by the process of natural selection. His work laid the foundation of evolutionary biology, though when it was published it caused tremendous religious and philosophical debates. Darwin's work is still seen by many people to oppose Christian beliefs.

Emmy Award–­winning filmmaker, writer, and naturalist Joe Hutto has done it again. Touching the Wild is the enchanting story about one man who has lived with a herd of mule deer in the Wind River mountains of Wyoming for almost seven years. Why, you may ask, would a person choose to do such a thing? His response: how could you not? For Joe Hutto, close proximity to wild things is irresistible.
In Illumination in the Flatwoods he unveiled the secret lives of the wild turkey to great critical acclaim. In Touching the Wild he turns his acute sense of wonder and affinity to one of the West's quintessential "big game" animals: the mule deer, a species in peril due to environmental factors.
Wily, thoughtful creatures, mule deer are not inclined to make foolish friendships with their primary predator—­man. But due to the intense curiosity of one small doe, and the resulting introduction to an entire herd, Joe Hutto has been allowed...
