Reviews
"Bernie Krause hears things the rest of us don't even realize we're missing. But if we listen carefully, starting with him, we just might resurrect some sweet sounds we've lost."--Alan Weisman, author of Countdown and The World Without Us--Alan Weisman
"Bernie Krause is a hero to many of us. In a deafened world, he hears, records and explains the parallel universes around us. In Voices of the Wild, he delves deeper into soundscape ecology, into philosophy and spirit, and the use of technology as way to open passageways into those universes. Voices of the Wild is fascinating, urgent, filled with sound and fury and beauty."--Richard Louv, author of The Nature Principle and Last Child in the Woods--Richard Louv
"Bernie Krause shares his delight in the sounds of the natural world and makes an impassioned case for the importance of such acoustics."--Shelf Awareness--Shelf Awareness
