Summary
Ashland Creek Press says, "The relationships among human and non-human animals go back to the beginning of time—and the ways in which these relationships have evolved (and sometimes not) is the inspiration for this collection of contemporary short fiction, penned by writers from across the globe.

This diverse collection of stories explores the ways in which we live among—and often in conflict with—our non-human counterparts. These stories feature animals from the familiar (dogs and cats) to the exotic (elands and emus), and in these stories animals are both the rescuers and the rescued. Within these pages are glimpses of the world through the eyes of a zookeeper, a shelter worker, a penguin researcher, and a neighborhood stray, among many others—all highlighting the ways in which animals and humans understand and challenge one another."

Our relationship with nature. #foodforthought



From the video transcript:
"I sometimes struggle with how we, as human beings, look at nature. It's as if we distance ourselves from it- watching from the sideline, seeing a tree here, and a river there, walking by, not really connecting with it, and often more so abusing than respecting it. It seems like a normality that human beings are the central part of Mother Earth and that everything revolving nature is something apart from us, that we can use however we want and we can regulate. Many of us have been brought up with the idea that we own the earth and that we can look at it from the outside, but instead we need to realize we're an integral part of it."
