I picked up this book because of the section pertaining to the gray whales of Baja, a place near to my heart. And Ms. O'Hanlon's recollections on this are spot on. But I also enjoyed the parts about wolves, bears and horses. She relates myth alongside science and observation, blending it all into a magical view of the richness of life on earth. Her eloquent prose will calm and enchant. A wonderful book for those desiring a deeper connection to wildlife.
