Lovers of nature and its denizens will enjoy themselves when Elaine Miller Bond, photographer, shares her work in The Utah Prairie Dog: Life among the Red Rocks (University of Utah Press), featuring over 150 images of rare prairie dogs in their natural habitat. Her nature and wildlife photographs have appeared on the Discovery Channel Canada and in Science, NPR, BBC Earth News, The American Naturalist, The Washington Post, Squirrels of the World (The Johns Hopkins University Press, 2012), An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology, 4th ed (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012), and other popular and scientific media.
Bond is also the author/illustrator of AFFIMALS: AFFIRMATIONS + ANIMALS (LIT Verlag, 2009) and DREAM AFFIMALS (Sunstone Press, 2013) — uplifting books of environmental education. The Humane Society of the United States calls AFFIMALS “an inspiration and a lesson,” and children’s and nature author T.A. Barron calls it “a wondrous and inspiring book for children of every age.”
