Moving from the bustle of the Bay Area, Patten recounts the ineffable wonder of seeing an elk calf being born, or hearing the howls of a wolf pack under a wintry moon. In a series of personal essays on wildlife, interspersed with modern-day homesteading, Patten describes her view of Land as spiritual refreshment- Land which must include the full array of wildlife. A new and important perspective on why we need to preserve our last wild lands.
