About the Author:

Gale E. Christianson, author of Fox at the Wood’s Edge: A Biography of Loren Eiseley, is a professor of history at Indiana State University, Terre Haute.

Review:

"Eiseley has met strange creatures in the night country, and he tells marvelous stories about them . . . For Eiseley, storytelling is never pure entertainment. The autobiographical tales keep illustrating the theses that wind through all his writing—the fallibility of science, the mystery of evolution, the surprise of life."—Time (Time)

"The autobiographical details that [Eiseley] uses in most of the essays have power over the reader’s imagination precisely because they have been filtered through a heightened sensibility. Most of us see; Eiseley challenges us to be aware."—America (America)

"A sort of Odyssey by a man in dialogue with nature and evolution; Eiseley remains one of our foremost humanists—and prose stylists."—Christian Century (Christian Century)

"[Eiseley] is the raconteur par excellence. His tales . . . all make fascinating reading."—Library Journal (Library Journal)

"There can be no question that Loren Eiseley maintains a place of eminence among nature writers. His extended explorations of human life and mind, set against the backdrop of our own and other universes are like those to be found in every book of nature writing currently available. . . .We now routinely expect our nature writers to leap across the chasm between science, natural history, and poetry with grace and ease. Eiseley made the leap at a time when science was science, and literature was, well, literature. . . .His writing delivered science to nonscientists in the lyrical language of earthly metaphor, irony, simile, and narrative, all paced like a good mystery."—The Bloomsbury Review (The Bloomsbury Review)
