Author Craig Childs shares science, history and lyricism with 'The Animal Dialogues'

CMC's Common Reader engages students, staff and community members and culminates with virtual author visits

CMC’s Common Reader Program this year celebrates Colorado’s own Craig Childs, America’s finest naturalist and adventurer. His classic collection of wilderness tales, The Animal Dialogues: Uncommon Encounters in the Wild, recounts dramatic, face-to-face meetings with sharks, bears, pumas, and winged species.

The Animal Dialogues invites us to swim, crawl, and climb with Childs as he moves beyond the human realm to see what we share with Earth’s other species.
