Big Maple Press is dedicated to publishing fine books sold only at independent stores!

We at Big Maple Press get along just fine with digital technology and megalithic online booksellers, it’s just that we would rather read real books and meet real people in real, brick-and-mortar stores. We’re sort of old-fashioned that way. We hope you’ll look for Big Maple Press titles, and that together we can support neighborhood independent bookstores and keep them at the cultural centers of our communities.

A Walk in the Animal Kingdom

Essays on Animals Wild and Tame

By Jerry Dennis and Glenn Wolff

Animals are everywhere in our lives. We follow them into the wild, we invite them into our homes, they inhabit our dreams, mythologies, folklores, and popular cultures. What is this powerful bond? Why are we so fascinated with animals of every kind? And why has our relationship with them always been riddled with such complexity and contradiction?
