These are Bledsoe's gripping tales of fending off wolves in Alaska, encountering UFOs in the Colorado Desert, and searching for mountain lions in Berkeley. Her memorable story The Breath of Seals takes readers to Antarctica, the wildest continent on earth, where she camped out with geologists, biologists, and astrophysicists. These fresh and deeply personal narratives remind us what it means to be simply one member of one species, trying to find food and shelter and moments of grace on our planet.
A vivid story-teller, Lucy Jane Bledsoe delivers a compelling and thought-provoking read. Her search for wild places leads her on an inner journey as well, taking her at last to the wildest continent of all. Bledsoe’s account of Antarctica is as mysterious and astonishing as the land itself.”Brenda Peterson, author of Build Me An Ark: A Life with Animals
