Summary
  • " In their critically acclaimed bestseller, Zoobiquity, the authors revealed the essential connection between human and animal health. In Wildhood, they turn the same eye-opening, species-spanning lens to adolescent young adult life. Traveling around the world and drawing from their latest research, they find that the same four universal challenges are faced by every adolescent human and animal on earth: how to be safe, how to navigate hierarchy; how to court potential mates; and how to feed oneself. Safety. Status. Sex. Self-reliance. How human and animal adolescents and young adults confront the challenges of wildhood shapes their adult destinies"--Amazon
  • "Trekking the globe and drawing from their latest research, Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers discovered that all animals and humans on the journey to adulthood face four core challenges: how to stay safe, negotiate status, navigate sexuality, and cultivate self-reliance. How human and animal adolescents meet these challenges shapes their adult destinies. They illuminate these four challenges through the real-life experiences of four wild animals tracked by scientists around the world. Through their stories and those of countless others, from rebellious eagles and stressed-out high schoolers to thrill-seeking orcas and malleable young soldiers, readers get a game-changing portrait of adolescents as planetwide tribe sharing behaviors and challenges, setbacks and triumphs" --
