About the Author

Deborah Bird Rose, Professor in the Centre for Research on Social Inclusion at Macquarie University, Sydney, is the author of Reports from a Wild Country: Ethics for Decolonisation and Dingo Makes Us Human: Life and Land in an Australian Aboriginal Culture.


[A] bold account of the entangled ethics of love, contingency, and desire.

--Australian Animal Studies Bulletin

As seemingly hopeless as the task of halting anthropogenic extinctions is, [Rose] says she believes that it is 'one toward which we owe an ethical response.'

--Chronicle of Higher Education

Rose, an anthropologist, uses the dingo as a touchstone to explore ethical connectivity between human and nonhuman life.... A well-referenced, wide-ranging, and sometimes abstract dialogue between dreamtime stories and Western existentialist philosophy on life, death, kinships, and dualism with nonhuman life.


Attuned to the complex harmonics in the howling of wild dingoes, Rose asks what it means to live and die in a time of escalating human-provoked mass extinctions. In her own practice, Rose shows us how to keep the stories rolling and rolling, winding around each other and us in the task of singing back the life and lives of the good earth. A wise and generative book."

--Donna Haraway, University of California, Santa Cruz, author of When Species Meet

Wild Dog Dreaming is a remarkable book, animated by a searching intelligence and a deeply ethical spirit. In a time of extinction Deborah Bird Rose teaches us what is inextinguishable: our kinship with animals.

--David L. Clark, McMaster University
