Giveaway: The Great Animal Orchestra by Bernie Krause

Bernie Krause is one of the world's experts in natural sound, and here we listen through Krause's ears as he collects the sounds of purring jaguars, snapping shrimp, cracking glaciers—and the roar of the wild. It is an intensely personal narrative of life as it hits the ears, and of the planet's deeply connected natural sounds and music.

Krause also shows that just as streetlights drown out the stars, human noise is vanishing the sounds of nature—and the very soundscapes that help us understand how wild sound and music connect.

A travelogue of sound based on a lifetime of study, this account will leave you hearing—and seeing—nature as never before.

He loves to see animals in their natural habitat. I couldn't agree more with him.

I learned that the author is trully passionate about his topic, often going to very isolated and remote regions to capture nature in its purest forms and sounds; that wilderness still exists in this world where humans are quickly expanding and drowning out the beauty of world that created us.

I noted that E.O. Wilson, Professor Emeritus of Evolutionary Biology at Harvard, says author Bernie Krause and his Niche Theory are 'the real thing'.
