See www.rightwards.com for a new book that features animals and history. A very interesting concept that shows how animals have been so important to us.

Another great book that shows how we don't pay enough attention to the nonhuman world is David Abram's book, Spell of the Sensuous.

On 9.27 my interview with Cathy and Jon Payne of Georgia will be on the Web site, www.ournaturallife.com. This interview was special to me because Cathy and Jon have a lot of farm animals. We were able to talk about them for a change. Especially interesting was our talking about how much good insects do for the earth and yet most people just want to eradicate them.
