BECOMING WILD How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace

by | Read by Carl Safina

Contemporary Culture • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Carl Safina starts off by bringing listeners along on a drenching trip to watch--and listen to--sperm whales off the coast of Dominica in the Caribbean. Listeners can feel his exasperation with the wetness and his growing understanding of the language hidden in the whales' clicks and squeaks. It's a feeling of learning along with the author. He's studying the ways whales and other animals in the wild pass along their culture and collective knowledge to each new generation. Safina also spends time observing macaws and chimpanzees to learn the secrets of their cultures. He speaks mainly about the lessons learned on his explorations, but there's a dramatic narration of a MOBY-DICK excerpt as well. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
