Wodening presents ‘Wolf Dictionary’ at Nederland Community Library, June 9

WolfDictionaryCoverJane Wodening presents her latest book WOLF DICTIONARY
June 9 at 7 p.m.
Nederland Community Library
200 Hwy. 72, Nederland, CO 80466
(303) 258-1101

This book is meant to help anyone who is interested in animals to understand their actions and their communications. I’ve put it in narrative form because it seemed the best way to clarify the reasons for the actions of the animals. In notes at the end of each chapter, I talk over the actions of the animals and what those actions mean.
– Jane Wodening, the author

“WOLF DICTIONARY will join Londonʼs WHITE FANG and Cormac McCarthyʼs THE CROSSING as the most stunning wolf writing ever.”
– Peter Warshall, Naturalist

“(Jane has) another way of knowing this world. So seeing birds light on her shoulder, a so-called forest creature come to her without fear, became just a part of her usual presence.”
– Robert Creeley, poet

“She is the master of bringing seemingly insignificant moments to towers of drama and emotion, such as the travails of insects as they strive to survive.”
– Barbara Lawler, reporter “The Mountain-Ear”
