Bug Music, Paperback (May 2014)
In the spring of 2013 the cicadas in the North Eastern United States emerged from their seventeen year cycle - the longest gestation period of any animal. This book explores a unique part of our relationship with nature and sound - the music of insects that has provided a soundtrack for humanity throughout the history of our species.
Thousand Mile Song, Paperback (March 2010)» View all books by David Rothenberg
Before the 1960s, no one suspected the existence of whale song. Its discovery forced us to confront the possibility of alien intelligence - not in outer space but right here on earth. This title uses the enigma of whale sounds to examine the question of whether we can ever truly understand nonhuman minds - and how we should go about it.
