            In the bestselling tradition of Marley & Me, the moving story of a dog, his human, and the friendship that saved both of their lives - and inspired countless others. When Ben Moon moved to Oregon, he hadn't planned on getting a dog. But when he met the soulful gaze of a husky-pit... bull cross pup in a rescue shelter, Ben instantly felt a connection, and his friendship with the extraordinary Denali was born. The two friends set out on the road together, on an adventure that would take them across the American west and through some of the best years of their lives. When Ben was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 29, Denali never once left his side until the two adventurers were back out surfing and climbing crags. It was only a short time later that Denali was struck by the same disease, and Ben had the chance to return the favor. With the help of a couple of filmmaker friends, Ben made a short film as a tribute to the dog he admits helped form him into an adult. It was a labour of love that struck a chord worldwide, viewed by more than 15 million people, and continues to touch new audiences. Denali is the story of a powerful friendship that shaped Ben and Denali's lives - and inspired countless others - showing the power of the strength and love that we give and receive when we have our friends by our side.

            The Bird Way

            From the New York Times bestselling author of The Genius of Birds, a radical investigation into the bird way of being, and the recent scientific research that is dramatically shifting our understanding of birds - how they live and how they think. 'There is the mammal way and ther...e is the bird way.' This is one scientist's pithy distinction between mammal brains and bird brains- two ways to make a highly intelligent mind. But the bird way is much more than a unique pattern of brain wiring, and lately, scientists have taken a new look at bird behaviours they have, for years, dismissed as anomalies or mysteries. What they are finding is upending the traditional view of how birds conduct their lives, how they communicate, forage, court, breed, survive. They're also revealing the remarkable intelligence underlying these activities, abilities we once considered uniquely our own - deception, manipulation, cheating, kidnapping, infanticide, but also, ingenious communication between species, cooperation, collaboration, altruism, culture, and play. Some of these extraordinary behaviours are biological conundrums that seem to push the edges of- well - birdness- A mother bird that kills her own infant sons, and another that selflessly tends to the young of other birds as if they were her own. Young birds that devote themselves to feeding their siblings and others so competitive they'll stab their nestmates to death. Birds that give gifts and birds that steal, birds that dance or drum, that paint their creations or paint themselves, birds that build walls of sound to keep out intruders and birds that summon playmates with a special call - and may hold the secret to our own penchant for playfulness and the evolution of laughter. Drawing on personal observations, the latest science, and her bird-related travel around the world, from the tropical rainforests of eastern Australia and the remote woodlands of northern Japan, to the rolling hills of lower Austria and the islands of Ala

            Our society is still learning how to dignify the relationship between a pet and their human with proper mourning rituals. We have only recently allowed the conversation of how to grieve for our non-human family members to come front and centre. In examining the special bond betwe...en pets and their people, Jeffery Moussaieff Masson validates the grief that we feel when a special pet dies. Lost Companions is full of poignant stories about dogs, cats, horses, birds, wombats and other animals that beautifully illustrate the strong bond humans form with them. A heartfelt exploration of human grief after the loss of a pet by the New York Times bestselling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love, Lost Companions is a thought-provoking book on pet loss. Masson takes a personal approach, allowing readers to explore their own responses, suggesting ways through and out of grief, as well as meaningful ways to memorialize our best friends.
