    Why are you here?


    I first read Ishmael in 2002 for an animal science class I was taking at the University of Minnesota. At the time I was struggling with a mental illness and didn't fully comprehend or retain the information. I just finished reading it again today (2004). When reading the book for the second time, I realized that I was told this exact story from my catholic religious ed class but since we were young they didn't go into detail. This book has answered all the lingering questions. I hope to be able to enlighten young ones some day, but am looking for people to guide me.

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    Another book I found that was recently published also has the same message in it. It's called Intimate Nature: The Bond Between Women and Animals." Edited by Linda Hogan, Deena Metzger, and Brenda Peterson. It includes teachings from the Native American culture as well as many other cultures. It also includes essays from Jane Goodall and many other pioneer women in science.
