We have fixated on this night hunter as predator, messenger, emblem of wisdom, something pretty to print on a tote bag or portent of doom. Darlington sets out to tell a new story.

In her watching and deep listening to the natural world, she cleaves myth from reality and will change the way you think of this magnificent creature."--Publisher's description."@en ;
