Top Sellers in Animal Behavior

    Animals Make Us Human by Temple; Johnson, Catherine Grandin

    The best-selling animal advocate Temple Grandin offers the most exciting exploration of how animals feel since The Hidden Life of Dogs. In her groundbreaking and best-selling book Animals in Translation, Temple Grandin drew on her own experience with autism as well as her distinguished career as an animal scientist to deliver extraordinary insights into how animals think, act, and feel.Now she builds on those insights to show us how to give our animals the best and happiest life—on their terms, not ours. It’s usually easy to pinpoint the cause of physical pain in animals, but to know what is causing them emotional distress is much harder.Drawing on the latest research and her own work,Grandin identifies the core emotional needs of animals.Then she explains how to fulfill them for dogs and cats, horses, farm animals, and zoo animals.Whether it’s how to make the healthiest environment for the dog you must leave alone most of the day, how to keep pigs from being bored, or how to know if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising,Grandin teaches us to challenge our assumptions about animal contentment and honor our bond with our fellow creatures. Animals Make Us Human is the culmination of almost thirty years of research, experimentation, and experience. This is essential reading for anyone who’s ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.

    Monster of God - the Man-Eating Predator in the Jungles of History and the Mind by Quammen, David

    Norton, New York, 2003. First Edition. Great and terrible flesh-eating beasts have always shared the landscape with humans. Now, of course, as humans spread and despoil the planet, predators may only survive on the other side of glass barriers and chain-link fences. David Quammen is no armchair evolutionary theorist, and, in The Song of the Dodo, everything he writes about he has experienced first-hand. In this book he examines the fate of lions in India's Gir forest, saltwater crocodiles in northern Australia, brown bears in the mountains of Romania, and Siberian tigers. He is equally intrigued by the traditional relationship between the great predators and the people who live among them, and weaves into his story the fears and myths that have haunted humankind for millennia. Fine cloth copy in an equally fine dw. Particularly and uncommonly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new; 515 pages; Map illustrated and complete with an impressively extensive bibliography. Subjects: Dangerous animals--Psychological aspects. Predatory animals--Ecology. Endangered species



    Sawtooth Wolves. by Jim Dutcher with Richard Ballantine

    Bearsville, NY Rufus Publications, 1996. Hardcover First Edition [1996], so stated. First Edition [1996], so stated. Near Fine in Very Good+ DJ: Book shows only minute indications of use: small, barely discernible yellow stain to front paste-down endpaper; binding shows the slightest lean, while remaining perfectly secure; text clean. DJ shows light wear to extremities; 1/4" closed tear to top spine; light wear at the corner tips; mild rubbing; price unclipped; mylar-protected. No longer 'As New', but remains close to it. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Folio. 192pp. Hardcover with Dustwrapper. This is an intimate look at the wolf, quite possibly one of the most misunderstood creatures on Earth. So often depicted as evil in lore and legend, this book shows another side of this beautiful animal. Instead of the red-eyed, drooling monster of myth, we see the well-organized society present in a wolf pack, full of nurture and play. The qualities of the wolf that seemed to prove its place in history are shown instead to be merely the means for its survival. The expressive photographs and rich text work well to dispel the myth of the wolf as just a savage beast.
