Snow. Finally. A real snow, the sort of snow northerners take for granted, a snow that falls for days, that blankets everything in sight, that blurs the edges of the world, that means you can ski.

Ask Now the Beasts
Our Kinship with Animals
Wild and Domestic
"Rudner has some astonishing tales to tell." --Kirkus Reviews
"Pure grace in motion is how I see this fine book."
--Maxine Kumin, Pulitzer Prize winning poet, author of
Jack and Other New Poems
Ask Now the Beasts is a beautiful meditation on how we
relate to animals: sometimes loving, sometimes misguided,
often exploitive, often with genuine concern. Capturing the
powerful ways that animals interact with us spiritually,
activate our imaginations, and tie us to our own ancient
beginnings, Ruth Rudner finds meaning and appreciation for
the way in which each animal exists fully in its own world
-- and how that world relates to ours. Entering variously
into love, hope, possibility, heartache, and wonder,
Rudner's stories ponder the richness of relationship,
whatever form it takes.
