"Brandon Keim's essays beautifully stir the mind and heart. This book is a joy!" ―Barbara J. King, author of Personalities on the Plate
"Brandon Keim writes with deep feeling and sensitivity for the lives of animals and builds a vitally important bridge between old-fashioned love of nature and the rapidly growing science of animal intelligence and animal emotions." ―Marc Bekoff, author of Rewilding Our Hearts
"The frontier of writing about animals is the attempt to go deeper from the species to the individuals, their lives as they live them. The Eye of the Sandpiper makes that penetration a journey, so that it begins more generally and proceeds to narrow its focus, then steps back and displays to us the big picture. I wanted to speed through this book, but I kept slowing down because it was too engaging to rush. The knowledgeable Brandon Keim is as much a thinker as he is a reporter."―Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel
"Brandon Keim is one of our finest chroniclers of nature. His beautiful writing radiates with his deep love for the world around us and the creatures we share it with." ―Ed Yong, The Atlantic
