內容簡介

  國家書卷獎決選入圍作者Sy Montgomery,結合科普與回憶錄的溫馨作品

  身為著作豐富、足跡踏遍世界的自然生物學家,Sy Montgomery從小就與動物相伴。孩提時期家中的蘇格蘭梗犬莫利Molly,就是她最好的夥伴,不只一起生活玩耍。莫利的性情與習性,梗犬的堅毅與活力…也在相處與觀察中,成為她性格裡的一部分。這本書,正是她寫下生命裡與13個物種──13個朋友──的美好相遇。

  深刻地認識另外一個人,往往能讓我們深獲啟發;這個道理,套用在認識另外一個物種時一樣適用!狗狗、豬、章魚…不同物種如何與世界相處,牠們迥異的性格與奇特之處,即便與你我差距甚遠,並無礙於牠們能觸動、回應我們在生命裡遇到的種種命題,教我們如何懷抱著愛,成為具有同情心的人,又或如何找到熱愛的事物,面對失去、沮喪,學會感恩與原諒…而最重要的,如何成為這廣大世界裡好生物的一份子。既是讓人眼睛一亮的科普介紹,也充滿作者溫柔的生命故事與向這些好朋友們學得的智慧。(文/博客來編譯)

  A New York Times bestseller!

  National Book Award finalist Sy Montgomery reflects on the personalities and quirks of 13 animals—her friends—who have profoundly affected her in this stunning, poetic, and life-affirming memoir featuring illustrations by Rebecca Green.


  Understanding someone who belongs to another species can be transformative. No one knows this better than author, naturalist, and adventurer Sy Montgomery. To research her books, Sy has traveled the world and encountered some of the planet’s rarest and most beautiful animals. From tarantulas to tigers, Sy’s life continually intersects with and is informed by the creatures she meets.

  This restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals—Sy’s friends—and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.

Review

  "Montgomery’s lyrical storytelling and resonant lessons on how animals can enhance our humanity result in a tender, intelligent literary memoir."—Publishers Weekly

  "The National Geographic channel meets memoir in this brief, compelling examination of what animals can teach us about ourselves."—Kirkus

  "Mongtomery’s gorgeously illustrated memoir is a must-read for animal lovers of every age."—HelloGiggles

  "Filled with fascinating stories of encounters and relationships with animals in various locations, this moving memoir will leave readers thinking about life on Earth, the creatures we share the planet with, and that 'brilliance' we have yet to fully understand."—School Library Journal

  “How to Be a Good Creature should be required reading. A superbly crafted memoir, this book brims with wonder, empathy, and emotion. It stands as a vivid reminder of the deep and necessary connection we share with all living things.”—Nick Jans, author of A Wolf Called Romeo

  “How to Be a Good Creature is one of the most moving books I have ever read. Sy Montgomery’s open honesty about her life allows her to find guidance from the unlikeliest creatures, and in their own ways these animals speak with the same spiritual purity as she speaks to us in this breathtaking work.”—Bob Tarte, author of Enslaved by Ducks

  “I don’t know anyone whose animal empathies and scientific bona fides I admire more than Montgomery’s—from the curiosity she holds for a tarantula to the tender longing she has for an octopus. Told with characteristic humility and gorgeous language, How to Be a Good Creature is a remarkable achievement.”—Eliot Schrefer, author of Endangered, a National Book Award finalist

  “A truly beautiful book about life, family, loss, and love.”—Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals

  “How to Be a Good Creature is a rare jewel, full of empathy and the profound wisdom Sy has received from animals she has loved over her extraordinary lifetime. This sweet book is a triumphant masterpiece that I’m recommending to everyone.”—Stacey O’Brien, author of Wesley the Owl

  “This is a beautiful book—essential reading for anyone who loves animals and knows how much they can teach us about being human.”—Gwen Cooper, author of Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder
