"What a great book! I loved it, and found it to be totally enthralling. As I read, I felt drawn deeper and deeper into a primal sense of hope. Not a naive hope, not wishful thinking, but a hope arising out of a sense of the immensity of human evolution and the profundity of our interconnectedness with all of life. I hope everyone on our dear and endangered Earth reads this book."
—John Robbins, author Healthy at 100
and Diet For a New America
is a novel of tremendous power. Passionate and erotic, at times tenderly lyrical, it confronts head-on, without flinching, brutal environmental and feminist politics. Its protagonist, Sage, is unique, magical, and haunting."
—Kate Wilhelm, author of The Unbidden Truth, Clear and Convincing Proof,
"Kelpie Wilson's Primal Tears
has rounded, memorable characters, evocative descriptions, lively dialogue, an exciting plot, and an understated, evenhanded wit that is very engaging...It is a clear-eyed, courageous look at some of the most denied and neglected threats to the biosphere and the place of humans in it."
—David Rains Wallace, author of The Monkey's Bridge
and The Bonehunters' Revenge
is primal storytelling, thoughtful and passionate. Kelpie Wilson wonderfully expands our definitions of human and family."
—Greg Bear, author of Blood Music, The Forge of God, Darwin's Radio,
