The Radiant Lives of Animals



From a celebrated Chickasaw writer, a spiritual meditation, in prose and poetry, on our relationship to the animal world, in an illustrated gift package.

Drawing on many native nations' ancient stories and spiritual traditions, celebrated Indigenous writer and environmentalist Linda Hogan shows us that the soul exists in those delicate places where the natural world extends into human consciousness. From her modest forest home in Colorado, and venturing throughout the region, especially to her beloved Oklahoma, she introduces us to horses, packrats, snakes, mountain lions, elks, wolves, bees, and so many others whose presence changed her life. Concerned that human lives and the natural world are too often shaped by people who are separated from the land and its inhabitants, Hogan offers a mindful connection to nature as a solution. In this illuminating collection of essays and poems, sprinkled with native art, Hogan depicts her own intense relationships with animals as an example to the rest of us. Altogether, this beautifully packaged gift is a reverential reminder for all of us to witness and appreciate the radiant lives of animals.
