“Amazingly clear and incisive readings of a wide range of discourses related to animals and ecology. With an impressive eye for detail and the ‘big picture,’ Stibbe gives real insights into the relationship between language, values, and actions.” (Karla Armbruster, coeditor of Beyond Nature Writing)
“Those of us of cultures of the land―both working with and, yes, consuming animals―will applaud Arran Stibbe’s analysis of the loss of soul when right relationship is discarded.” (Alastair McIntosh, Centre for Human Ecology, and author of Soil and Soul)
