These thoughtful tales demonstrate how the author spoke silently with all forms of life and how he grew to understand their silent replies. Boone never looked down on animals as “lesser creatures;” rather, he looked across at them as companions in the grand adventure of life. Everything that lives has something of value to share with us.< Less
