SIGNED BY MITCHELL on title page and INSCRIBED on the front fly leaf. Novelist and shepherd Mitchell presents this account of what happened after a biologist from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department asked for permission to track bats on his farm. The author having been an iconoclast since his youth, the book is as much a story about a back-to-the-land Vermont farmer coming to collaborate with government as the story of the bats for whose benefit the forested land was managed. This idealist muses on the process of balancing concerns of money, ecology, independence and co-dependence, wrapping up the book with insights learned in convoluted manner about nature, society, and himself.

A full symphony that swells from the most vocal of more than 350 avian throats representing more than 40 species. "It knocks me out, every day," she says.Pandemonium, the home and bird sanctuary that Raffin shares with some of the world's most remarkable birds, is a conservation organization dedicated to saving and breeding birds at the edge of extinction, with the goal of eventually releasing them into the wild.

They can teach us volumes about the interrelationships of humans and animals.
