Publisher's Summary

Every animal has a story.

A lively blend of memoir, natural history, and mindfulness, Zooburbia is an inspirational collection of stories of the wildlife with whom we coexist.

In Zooburbia, urban naturalist Tai Moses explores the "extraordinary, unruly, half-wild realm where human and animal lives overlap." The author's woodsy backyard at the base of the Oakland hills becomes a laboratory for encounters with a variety of animals, from deer, raccoons, and squirrels to birds, lizards, and feral cats. The more Moses learns about their natural histories, the more curious she becomes about their stories and recognizes our intimate connection to the animals among us.

Each chapter focuses on a different animal encounter: an octopus in a pet shop, a goat stuck in a fence, or the author's pet dog. Each encounter invites the reader to think about the wildness of city life and the meaning of our relationship to the animals that live with and around us.

This beautifully written and heartfelt memoir is sure to delight animal lovers, urban farmers and gardeners, and people who love the outdoors.
