About the Author

Linda Hogan, a Chicksaw poet, essayist, and novelist, worked as a volunteer in wildlife and raptor rehabilitation. In 1995 she organized a conference for tribal elders on endangered species and was part of a working group for Native input into the reauthorization of the Endangered Species Act. Her lifelong area of interest has been the traditional relationship between indigenous peoples and animals. Her books include Dwellings: A Spiritual History of the Living World, Book of Medicines, and Solar Storms.

Deena Metzger has lived with wolves for twenty years, writing about them from her home in the Santa Monica mountains. As a poet, writer, and lay analyst, she has devoted her writing and working life to ecological and environmental concerns. Her books include Tree, What Dinah Thought, The Woman Who Slept with Men to Take the War Out of Them, and Writing for Your Life.

Brenda Peterson is author if Nature and Other Mothers, Living by Water, and Sister Stories, as well as three novels. She is also an environmental writer and journalist. For the past twelve years she has been studying and encountering dolphins and other whales in the wild. Since 1993 she has covered the wild wolf--from its slaughter in Alaska to its reintroduction in Yellowstone and Olympic National Park. She has written, with Linda Hogan, a series of articles against proposed whaling in the Northwest for The Seattle Times.
