Format: Paperback
Being human is a lonely affair. At least, for most of us. Part of the problem is that we don't give equal recognition to any life form unless it is limited to two legs. After reading Kinship With All Life, I guarantee that your loneliness will significantly diminish, unless you are one of those "two-leggeds" whose arrogance takes precedence over truth. What truth? That we are not solely the creatures for whom the planet Earth was created. Boone foreshadowed the 21st C. by a good 60 years in his ideas that there is more to nonhuman creatures than meets the eye. Carrying that torch in our time is Daniel Quinn, whose book, Ishmael has stirred hearts and controversy all over the globe. Another tiein is When Elephants Weep, a review of the scientific material available on the emotional lives of animals. Some of us spend fruitless hours wondering if we are alone in the universe yet never stop to apply that to Earth. We take for granted we are. Add more meaning to your life on levels heretofore only imagined. Read Boone and lose both your arrogance and loneliness in the process. Zoe Calder

Format: Paperback
I first read Kinship With All Life many years ago, set it aside and then experienced the changes it had made in my thinking. I can never look at the creatures who inhabit the planet with us in the same way again. When I realized the impact the book had made on my world view, I tried to find it again, but couldn't, until recently, when I found it had been reprinted.
It is an amazingly humble, unassuming work, even though it proposes a revolutionary shift in human attitudes. It is very short, and can be read in one sitting, which is how it will be read by most people. Never preachy, it uses humor and anecdote to gently persuade the reader to behold the world in a new way.

Format: Paperback
I've witnessed old Hopi farmers singing to their crops. I've been with Navajos, while deer hunting, and watched them sing to ravens...to ask them to show them where to hunt deer. I,ve talked to coiled rattle snakes, and seen them relax...and slither away. I'm surprised at the arrogance of humans, assuming..that intelligence is an exclusive domain. This book will, I hope, open closed minds to the life around them...and encourage dialogue...with other life forms.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is officially my favourite book of all time. What an inspirational read. It's the kind of book that you buy multiple copies of and send to friends as presents. It's hard to find another book to compare it to but if you love animals and believe that they hold their own innate intelligence then you have to get this book. It will change your outlook on life.

Format: Paperback
This book stimulated much more discussion and thought than its slim contents would indicate. It broadens the concept of communication far beyond current human concepts.

Format: Paperback
This is a most inspirational book, a true classic that has been the basis for many writer's continued study in the area of animal-human communication, including my own with horses.
Do read it .....
