Here is a book
to delight people of all ages. Animals and Other People is about
wild and domestic animals, about petsranging from a wild
tom turkey to a mongooseand about people who are "teched"
and have that inner sense and mystical feeling which makes them
one with nature and with animals and birds.
The book ranges
from comedy to tragedy. The stories are sensitive and intimate,
for Louis Bromfield is aware that every animal and bird has a
personality of its own and that even among cows there are music
lovers, clowns, and termagants. As Ellen Bromfield Geld remarked
as a child, "The trouble with the animals on this farm is
that they all think they're people."
