After decades spent observing birds, Esther Woolfson now turns her gimlet eye to reflect more broadly on the relationship between humans and animals and how we, the humans that is, don’t always come out covered in glory.   Between Light and Storm is Esther’s forensic look at how we live with other species.

Exploring everything from our representations of animals in art, our consumption of them for food, and experimentations for science, she examines complex ethical issues surrounding our treatment of non-humans and argues for a more humble and humane relationship with the creatures who share our planet.
