            Tom Inglis and his dog Pepe have lived together for seventeen years: endless days of walks and play and the odd bit of chaos. While Tom was experiencing joy and grief and everything in between, Pepe was by his side, ready for the next day. Now, though, they are both getting old. ...Tom is reflecting on the strange but wonderful bond they have developed, but he is not entirely sure what Pepe is experiencing or thinking about, if indeed she is thinking at all. A Dog is for Life looks at the relationships we have with our dogs. It explores why we take on the hassle of caring for these pet animals who rely on us so completely, who can create mess and upset in our lives, and who will probably die before us, leaving us to behind to grieve. We know all of this before bringing them home for the first time, and yet we go on ahead, time after time. As dogs enrich and disrupt the lives of their owners, becoming the constant around which days are scheduled and holidays are planned, what do they make of it all? How well do we actually understand them? And what exactly is that powerful, intangible connection we humans have forged with them? A Dog is for Life is a moving and engaging exploration of life alongside man's best friend. It is a book for everyone who has ever loved a dog.

            Becoming Wild: How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace (Hardback)

            New York Times bestselling author Carl Safina brings readers close to three non-human cultures--what they do, why they do it, and how life is for them. Some people insist that culture is strictly a human feat. What are they afraid of? This book looks into three cultures of other-...than-human beings in some of Earth's remaining wild places. It shows how if you're a sperm whale, a scarlet macaw, or a chimpanzee, you too experience your life with the understanding that you are an individual in a particular community. You too are who you are not by genes alone; your culture is a second form of inheritance. You receive it from thousands of individuals, from pools of knowledge passing through generations like an eternal torch. You too may raise young, know beauty, or struggle to negotiate a peace. And your culture, too, changes and evolves. The light of knowledge needs adjusting as situations change, so a capacity for learning, especially social learning, allows behaviors to adjust, to change much faster than genes alone could adapt. Becoming Wild offers a glimpse into cultures among non-human animals through looks at the lives of individuals in different present-day animal societies. By showing how others teach and learn, Safina offers a fresh understanding of what is constantly going on beyond humanity. With reporting from deep in nature, alongside individual creatures in their free-living communities, this book offers a very privileged glimpse behind the curtain of life on Earth, and helps inform the answer to that most urgent of questions: Who are we here with?

            Desperate to connect with his native Galloway, Patrick Laurie plunges into work on his family farm in the hills of southwest Scotland. Investing in the oldest and most traditional breeds of Galloway cattle, he begins to discover how cows once shaped people, places and nature in t...his remote and half-hidden place. This traditional breed requires different methods of care from modern farming on an industrial, totally unnatural scale. As the cattle begin to dictate the pattern of his life, Patrick stumbles upon the passing of an ancient rural heritage. Always one of the most isolated and insular parts of the country, as the twentieth century progressed, the people of Galloway deserted the land and the moors have been transformed into commercial forest in the last thirty years. The people and the cattle have gone, and this withdrawal has shattered many centuries of tradition and custom. Much has been lost, and the new forests have driven the catastrophic decline of the much-loved curlew, a bird which features strongly in Galloway's consciousness. The links between people, cattle and wild birds become a central theme as Patrick begins to face the reality of life in a vanishing landscape.
