HOW TO BE A GOOD CREATURE

A Memoir in Thirteen Animals

by Montgomery, SyRebecca , Green

Understanding a living thing that belongs to another species can be transformative. No one knows this better than Sy Montgomery. Naturalist, adventurer, and the author of more than 20 books, many of them award winners, Montgomery has hiked the Altai Mountains of Mongolia looking for snow leopards and tracked tree kangaroos in Papua New Guinea. In her travels, she has encountered some of the planet’s rarest and most beautiful animals. Her life continually intersects with and is changed by the creatures she meets. Among the animals you will meet in these pages are dogs who shared her home, a pig who lived in her barn, huge flightless birds, two tree kangaroos, and a spider, a weasel, and an octopus. The book also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.
