David George Haskell: The Call of the Wild
Open your ears to choruses of frogs and birds, the thwops and whistles of whales and the chirrups of crickets as David George Haskell introduces his non-fiction rallying cry, Sounds Wild and Broken. The music made by the world’s creatures contains extraordinary information about evolution, animal behaviour and the history of the earth. But human noise has begun to drown it out. The New York Times dubs Haskell a ‘great poet-scientist… a laureate for the earth’.
