Gleaned from historians, journalists, biologists, ranchers, artists, philosophers, teachers, and conservationists, these narratives expose the complex challenges faced by wild animals and those devoted to understanding them. Whether discussing keystone species like grizzly bears and gray wolves or microfauna swimming the thermal depths of geysers, these accounts reflect the authors\' expertise as well as their wonder and respect for wild nature. The writers do more than inform our sensibilities; their narratives examine both humanity\'s conduct and its capacity for empathy toward other life. A selection of photos and paintings punctuates the volume. This collection sprang from the Reimagine Western Landscapes Symposium held at the University of Utah\'s Taft-Nicholson Environmental Humanities Education Center in Centennial Valley, Montana. These testaments join a chorus of voices seeking improved relations with the western wild in the twenty-first century\"--Provided by publisher.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/5416699447#Person\/miller_leslie_k<\/a>> ; # Leslie K.
