TAMED AND UNTAMED Close Encounters of the Animal Kind

by | Read by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, Sy Montgomery

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The authors love animals. Sy Montgomery even loves the ermine who attacked her chickens. THE BOSTON GLOBE essays that form their audiobook mix the personal with larger issues, and the authors' readings add to the impact. Elizabeth Marshall Thomas is soft-spoken and firm with her objection to poaching. Thomas's voice reflects her patience as she recalls the troublesome housebreaking of a tiny dog. Montgomery has moments of exuberance as she tells of sitting in a pit full of garter snakes or dancing with a cockatoo. Montgomery also tells an emotional story about her father. The essays are brief, packing six hours with everything from a cat's night out to the meaning behind squirrel chatter. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2018]
