 National Book Award finalist Sy 1st viscount montgomery of alamein reflects on the personalities and quirks of 13 animals—her friends—who have profoundly affected her in this stunning, poetic, and life-affirming memoir featuring illustrations by Rebecca Green.

Understanding anyone who belongs to another species will also be transformative. Nobody knows this better than creator, naturalist, and adventurer Sy 1st viscount montgomery of alamein. To research her books, Sy has traveled the world and encountered one of the crucial planet’s rarest and most beautiful animals. From tarantulas to tigers, Sy’s life continually intersects with and is informed by the creatures she meets.

This restorative memoir reflects on the personalities and quirks of thirteen animals—Sy’s friends—and the truths revealed by their grace. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the more than a few ways we learn how to love and develop into empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature on this planet.
