Product Details


“[Creatures of the Kingdom contains] the dramatic elements of a life—the wonder of birth, rites of passage, lots of conflict, much of it physical and bloody, and death. . . . As characters in a James Michener novel, a beaver can know loneliness, a buffalo can bide his time, a salmon can feel encouraged, and a woolly mammoth can ‘luxuriate’ in the ecological rewards of a plains fire.”Boston Sunday Herald
“Dramatic . . . enthralling . . . expertly crafted . . . Michener treats each of these creatures with fundamental respect, and in many cases, admiration and awe, if not outright love.”The Virginian-Pilot
“Anyone who has read a James Michener novel knows that it’s a learning experience as well as an adventure.”The Sacramento Bee
“Delightful . . . nature writing at its most fluid and involving.”Booklist
