I am constantly on the lookout for survivalist stories and books about the natural world, and this one showed up on my search on Libby. This is a quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed about one woman's deep connection to animals, with an essay love letter for each one that has profoundly affected her in her lifetime. I would have loved for it to be longer! -Mari
