BEING A BEAST: ADVENTURES ACROSS THE SPECIES DIVIDE

Written by Foster, Charles
Charles Foster set out to know the ultimate other: the non-humans, the beasts. And to do that, he tried to be like them, choosing a badger, an otter, a fox, a deer, and a swift. He lived alongside badgers for weeks, eating earthworms and learning to sense the landscape by smell rather than sight.
