Reviews

"In this slim and amiable book Ms. Thomas gathers a pile of small, not uninteresting observations about deer, and in doing so she subtly alters the way you look at them in a forest or from a window."--New York Times
Praise for CERTAIN POOR SHEPHERDS: "America's foremost explainer of animal feelings and thoughts has woven fur and scent into the Christmas story, with amusing, moving results."--John Updike
"The Hidden Life of Deer is a glorious achievement, giving new meaning to what it is both to be human and to be alive on this planet of wonders."--New York Review of Books
Praise for REINDEER MOON "[The author] knows human feelings so well, in all their joy and bitterness. And her literary judgment is flawless. Her wisdom shines forth and, as always, her prose is strong and sure."--Annie Dillard
