Description
NATURE / ANIMALS Wolves are the poster animals for showing just how complex our relationships with other animals can be. If these magnificent beasts could read, they d love this book. --Marc Bekoff, co-founder with Jane Goodall of Ethologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, author of Animal Passions and Beastly Virtues, and editor of the three-volume Encyclopedia of Animal BehaviorIn the past, animals had worth to people only if they were edible, could carry heavy loads obediently, or had some other practical use. Recently, however, we have started to realize what we have lost through the extinction of so many wild creatures. Every step we take away from nature we pay for with a loss of understanding and wisdom. What we persecute and exterminate in the outer world we also eradicate in our souls. The highly stigmatized wolf, brought nearly to extinction by humans, is one part of our natural world whose value and wisdom we are just beginning to understand.In Kinship with the Wolf, a heartfelt examination of the wolf as a spiritual and ecological role model, Tanja Askani reveals a new facet of relating to wolves and to the world as a whole. Unlike other wolf researchers who strive to dominate these vicious predators and who measure their success by how much the wolf pack obeys them, Askani bases her wolf relationships on broad respect and knowledge as well as extraordinary empathy and love. Through detailed descriptions of her eight years living with wolves at the L neburger Heide Wildlife Preserve in Germany, she reveals a new picture of the wolf as a highly intelligent, social, sensitive creature that brings inestimable value to healthynatural systems. Her respect for the pack s autonomous rules and her sensitivity to the wolves changing feelings and moods clearly distinguishes her from others who work with wolves. Her ability to communicate with and relate to wolves is a model of how we can respond to the intelligent complexity of life with care, respect, and wisdom and how we can maintain an intensive connection to the natural world without exercising human dominance.Tanja Askani has been bonding with animals since she was a child. She established the first wolf pack in the L neburger Heide Wildlife Preserve in 1998 and continues to care for its wolf packs in addition to many other animals. She lives in Germany.
