Why Do Whales & Children Sing
How did our culture come to lose it's appreciation for the voices of our planetary companions? What can paying attention to sound offer us, individually and collectively? This wide-ranging and accessible book leads us to ask such questions, while showing how sound invites us into connection with nature, and ourselves, in profoundly direct ways. Over the course of forty brief essays, each accompanied by a track on the CD, Dunn explores the universal qualities of soundmaking and listening. His diverse interests lead to an insightful blend of history, biology, personal reflection, deep ecology musings, and social context. 96 page book with CD.
