This book arrived in reasonable condition. There were stickers on the front which wasn't mentioned in the description, which spoiled the cover quite a bit, (hence 3 stars). But otherwise very good value and good delivery.
Ursula Le Guin is a unique writer and this collection (which I am half way through) is one of those books whose message takes time to percolate. I particularly enjoyed the different view points ,not always human. It stretched my imagination, exploring our relationship with the natural world and our place within it in unexpected ways. Ursula Le Guin is always a pleasure to read.

The sense of "otherness". 9 Jun. 2001
By "surion" - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is amazing how Ursula K. Le Guin can write. When you are reading about her character you can feel their thoughts - you get new sense which enables you to live the life of the book. In "Buffalo Gals..." you learn about animals and you can take a look at the humankind from outside. Poems in the book show rather unexpectable aspects of what they describe - this is another great ability of UKL. But I recommend this book to the poeple who want to meditate about things, not just to read it.

Mind Opening 31 Oct. 2002
By Judy Foldoe - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. Short and sweet, it's an ingenious example of a writer who likes to experiment in unusual perspectives. With creative abandon, LeGuin speaks to you as a tree, animals, and people from the future. In this book and others, she shows her ability to develop rich characters while going as far from "realism" as she can get. This book includes poems that are each short, meaningful, and awareness-building; if you're a writer they will inspire you to think outside the box. "The Wife's Story" is a must read, very intriguing! She is my favorite write by far!

a must for Le Guin fans! 20 July 2014
By dSavannah George-Jones - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a beautiful collection of stories and poems! As always, I am amazed at this author's ability to *write*. Every story, every poem, is a new adventure written in a new voice. From the child saved by Coyote after a plane crash, to the person being put through mazes like a lab rat, to the girl and her white donkey, all of the stories are beautiful and wholly-realized worlds. Her poetry made me think, and I enjoyed reading her introductions, which she said she wrote as if she was speaking them to an audience.

Highly recommended for fans of Le Guin to see a different side of her work.

one of my all time favorites 23 Nov. 2014
By L - Published on
Format: Paperback
The story "Buffalo Gals" is one of my all time favorites and so memorable. I like the way the reviewer Surion put it - "a sense of otherness".
