BOOK EXCERPT:

In this fascinating book from the New York Times bestselling author of The Horse, Wendy Williams explores the lives of one of the world’s most resilient creatures—the butterfly—shedding light on the role that they play in our ecosystem and in our human lives. Butterflies are one of the world’s most beloved insects. From butterfly gardens to zoo exhibitions, they are one of the few insects we’ve encouraged to infiltrate our lives. Yet, what has drawn us to these creatures in the first place? And what are their lives really like? In this groundbreaking book, New York Times bestselling author and science journalist Wendy Williams reveals the inner lives of these “flying flowers”—creatures far more intelligent and tougher than we give them credit for. Monarch butterflies migrate thousands of miles each year from Canada to Mexico. Other species have learned how to fool ants into taking care of them. Butterflies’ scales are inspiring researchers to create new life-saving medical technology. Williams takes readers to butterfly habitats across the globe and introduces us to not only various species, but to the scientists who have dedicated their lives to studying them. Coupled with years of research and knowledge gained from experts in the field, this accessible “butterfly biography” explores the ancient partnership between these special creatures and humans, and why they continue to fascinate us today. Touching, eye-opening, and incredibly profound, The Language of Butterflies reveals the critical role they play in our world.

BOOK EXCERPT:

An enthralling look at one of the world’s most beautiful and resilient animals, and the role they play in our ecosystem Butterflies are beloved across the globe, adorning gardens, parks and zoos. Their feats are staggering – monarchs migrate thousands of kilometres each year. They are smarter than we think – some species have learned to fool ants into taking care of them. Their beauty has led many to obsession – lepidopterists (butterfly-seekers) have died in search of particular species, frenzied and driven mad in the pursuit of colour. What draws us to these creatures so intensely? Why do they live so briefly? How do they get their colours? Science journalist Wendy Williams investigates butterflies across the globe, their habitats and those dedicated to studying them. She examines the ancient partnership between butterflies and humans, and the ways we depend on them today – from a bellwether on climate change to a source of life-saving medical technology. For lovers of Sy Montgomery’s The Soul of an Octopus and Peter Wohlleben’s The Hidden Life of Trees, this melodious book reveals the inner lives of these special creatures and shows why they continue to fascinate us. Touching, eye-opening and profound, it is a love letter to these vanishing species, and a celebration of the beauty and joy they bring to our world. ‘Enchanting ... introduces us to an array of fascinating people who help tease out delightful insights into lepidopteran biology and evolution. This is a wonderful read.’ —David Suzuki ‘There’s much to relish in this flashy tale.’ —Fiona Capp, The Sydney Morning Herald ‘Nature-loving readers will surely share the joy Williams takes in her subject in this admiring tribute to the butterfly.’ —Publisher's Weekly

In December 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby, the 43-year-old editor of French Elle, suffered a massive stroke that left him permanently paralyzed, a victim of “locked in syndrome.” Once known for his gregariousness and wit, Bauby now finds himself imprisoned in an inert body, able to communicate only by blinking his left eye. The miracle is that in doing so he was able to compose this stunningly eloquent memoir.In a voice that is by turns wistful and mischievous, angry and sardonic, Bauby gives us a celebration of the liberating power of consciousness: what it is like to spend a day with his children, to imagine lying in bed beside his wife, to conjure up the flavor of delectable meals even as he is fed through at tube. Most of all, this triumphant book lets us witness an indomitable spirit and share in the pure joy of its own survival.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The revelatory and groundbreaking adventure into the 56-million-year history of the horse that horse-lovers have been waiting for Horses have a story to tell, one of resilience, sociability and intelligence, and of partnership with human beings. In The Horse, the journalist and equestrienne Wendy Williams brings that story brilliantly to life. Williams celebrates the 56-million-year journey of horses as she visits with scientists and conservationists around the world, revealing what our noble companion may think and feel, and what our biological affinities and differences can tell us about the bond between horses and humans. Indeed, recent scientific breakthroughs regarding the social and cognitive capacities of the horse and its ability to adapt to changing ecosystems indicate that we should celebrate this animal as a major evolutionary triumph. Williams charts the fascinating course that leads to our modern Equus—from the proto-horse to the Dutch warmbloods, thoroughbreds and miniature ponies of the twenty-first century. She observes magnificent and ancient cave art that signals a deep respect and admiration for horses well before they were domesticated; visits the mountains of Wyoming with an expert in equine behavior to understand the dynamics of bands of free-roaming mustangs; witnesses the acrobatics of the famous Lipizzaners of Vienna; contemplates what life is like for the sure-footed, mustachioed Garrano horses who thrive on the rugged terrain of Galicia; and more. She blends profound scientific insights with remarkable stories to create a unique biography of the horse as a sentient being with a fascinating past and a finely nuanced mind. The Horse is a revelatory account of the animal who has carried us into battle and travelled with us across the plains, giving us unprecedented insight into the behaviour and history of the animal who has been at our side through the ages. Enriched by Wendy Williams’s own experience with horses, The Horse is a masterful work of narrative non-fiction that celebrates and pays tribute to this champion of the natural world. PRAISE FOR KRAKEN “Williams writes with a deft, supple hand as she surveys these spindly, extraordinary beasts and their world. She reminds us that the known world might be considerably larger than in the days of the bestiary-makers, but there is still room for wonder and strangeness.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES
