On this week's episode of Animal Instinct, Celia is joined by Susan Ewing. Nature and animals have played a key role in Susan’s work and in her life. She has been writing about natural history and the outdoors since the early 1990s, and has written books on the nature of Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and the Rocky Mountains. Her greatest joys and comforts have come from a string of very good dogs and the birds, frogs, foxes, and other animals she is lucky enough to encounter on her hikes and walks in the Montana mountains where she lives. She is the author of six books, most recently Resurrecting the Shark, and her articles, essays, and short stories have appeared in Salon, The Pacific Standard, Cowboys & Indians, Montana Quarterly, Big Sky Journal, and numerous other publications and anthologies.
