"Earth's Own Animal us a serene embattled wake-up call. It offers poems and drawings good as gold from David Schooley's half-century with San Bruno Mountain, They touch emptiness and dawn, coyote and humming bird, dragonflies, sage, sunken rage, and nights by creeks with boulders for a pillow under stands of coast live oak. David, too, honors the indigenous Ohlone -- the first people of the Mountain who settled on us slopes and canyons thousands of years ago, David also tracks the wild delicate battle he waged in league with locals to protect the Mountain's 3,600 acres of buckeye, oaks, and Manzanita, its shell mounds, valleys, and ravines with their multiple microclimates sustaining rare species in the world's last piece of native Franciscan land." -- Rear cover
