"Pride of Eden is intimate in detail and thematically epic. Beautifully written and hard to put down, this book fairly bursts with a sense of place so rich you feel as if you are stepping into this lush world and characters--including the animals--with whom you don't want to stop spending time. Taylor Brown has firmly established himself as one of our finest novelists." --Silas House, author of Southernmost

"In prose that sings, Taylor Brown has written a crackling and propulsive new myth of environmentalism. Pride of Eden is an ode to all that is fierce, wild and resilient in this shifting world of ours, and a reminder to fight hard for the things we love." --Robin MacArthur, author of Half Wild and Heart Spring Mountain

"'Atavistic' is one way to describe Pride of Eden. 'Fantastic' is another. Because Taylor Brown has accomplished something truly unique with this remarkable novel, telling a story that's both gripping and tender, with prose as savagely beautiful as the apex predators it celebrates. Pride of Eden is simply a pleasure to read." --Dane Huckelbridge, author of No Beast So Fierce

"Pride of Eden is a beautifully written, visionary novel of scarred souls seeking redemption not only for themselves but, in their limited way, for us all. Taylor Brown is clearly one of the best American writers of his generation. We are fortunate to have his voice in these dark times." --Ron Rash, author of Serena and Eureka Mill

"...what makes this riveting nail-biter most impressive is Brown's knowledge and passion." --Booklist

"Couched in a thrilling narrative, Brown's heartbreaking yet hopeful message of humanity's moral responsibility for the natural world and its magnificent creatures will linger with readers." --Publishers Weekly
