Reading the Wild by Bev Doolittle and Elise Maclay.
We share the earth with hundreds of thousands of species. All around us, animals are going about their lives, eating, mating, organizing and playing, Even a city park has signs of animal life, if you look closely.
It’s easy to think of ourselves as the center of all this life, particularly if you live in a city, but man is really part of a network of life on earth, Like all networks, each piece helps to hold together the whole. But we are the one creation with the poser and intelligence to protect this sacred circle of life.
From a tiny frog that lives above the treeline in the Sierra Nevada, to the great grizzly bear who was associated with healing and medicine by many Native Peoples, Reading the Wild will fill you with wonder, and from there it’s just a small step to respect for, and preservation of our wilderness.
Bev Doolittle is one of the most recognized artists when it comes to her unique style, and intricate detail. Doolittle’s art has been highly sought after since the late 1970’s when she first published Pintos (LEP) through the Greenwich Workshop.
