A naturalist who spent months at a time living on her own among wild creatures in remote jungles, Sy Montgomery had always felt more comfortable with animals than with people. So she gladly opened her heart to a sick piglet who had been crowded away from nourishing meals by his stronger siblings. Yet Sy had no inkling that this piglet, later named Christopher Hogwood, would not only survive but flourish.

Not as intensely interesting as some of Sy's books, but still sweet and good. It was a soothing story, read well, that I very much enjoyed. It was more of a memoir than any of her other books that I have read.
