Authors on Animals™

Authors talk with Tracie about their books, which focus on creatures who share the planet with us. Some of the books are newly released, others are old favorites; some books are fiction and works of the imagination, others are non-fiction and the culmination of years of research spent studying the species of choice, whether animals of the land, sea or sky.

Authors On Animals #111 (11-10-2014)

Authors On Animals (11-10-2014) #111: Michael Perry is making a new life in the country with two pigs, a dozen chickens, and a baby due any minute, in his humorous memoir, COOP: A Family, a Farm and the Pursuit of One Good Egg; Jeff Guidry with AN EAGLE NAMED FREEDOM: My True Story of a Remarkable Friendship writes about the baby eagle with broken wings for which he became the caretaker at a sanctuary, only to have the eagle return his devotion when Jeff was diagnosed with stage three non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. During chemotherapy Jeff’s visits to Freedom and their special bond are an affirmation of the spiritual connection that humans and animals share.
