Abstract:

"A spirited, gracefully polemical introduction and the final story, "She Unnames Them, '' frame this collection of fiction and poetry, placing it in a natural but unsentimental light. These are not really "talking animal'' stories: they are about human apprehension of natural creation (including rocks and plants) and the relations this apprehension governs; or, how communication makes communities. Seven of ten stories and seven of 19 poems having already been published, while a couple of pieces read like working drafts. Among the best pieces is the title story; like many of the others, it works its effect through a reversal of the usual (human) point of view."--Library Journal.
