While an illness keeps her bedridden, Elisabeth Bailey watches a wild snail that has taken up residence in a terrarium alongside her bed. She enters the rhythm of life of this mysterious creature, and comes to a greater understanding of her own confined place in the world.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is an affirmation of the healing power of nature, revealing how much of the world we miss in our busy daily lives, and how truly magical it is. A remarkable journey of survival and resilience, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating shows how a small part of the natural world can illuminate our own human existence and deepen our appreciation of what it means to be fully alive.

From the Inside Flap:

If rapt attention is a kind of prayer, then this is a prayerful book. Bailey pays homage to splendors small and humble enough to fit inside a terrarium." --Scott Russell Sanders
 
In a work that beautifully demonstrates the  rewards of closely observing nature, Elisabeth  Bailey shares an inspiring and intimate story of her  encounter with a Neohelix albolabris-- a common  woodland snail.  While an illness keeps her bedridden, Bailey  watches the wild snail that has taken up residence on  her nightstand. As a result, she discovers the solace  and sense of wonder that this mysterious creature  brings and comes to a greater understanding of  her own confined place in the world. 
 
Intrigued by the snail's molluscan anatomy,  cryptic defenses, clear decision making, hydraulic  locomotion, and mysterious courtship activities,  Bailey becomes an astute and amused observer,  offering a candid and engaging look into the  curious life of this underappreciated small animal.  The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is a remarkable  journey of survival and resilience, showing us  how a small part of the natural world illuminates  our own human existence and provides an  appreciation of what it means to be fully alive.

From the Back Cover:

Backcover excerpt from The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating:   "Each evening the snail awoke and, with an astonishing amount of  poise, moved gracefully to the rim of the pot and peered over,  surveying, once again, the strange country that lay ahead. Pondering its circumstance with a regal air, as if from the turret of a castle, it waved its tentacles first this way and then that, as though responding to a distant melody." 
  Backcover blurbs:
"As I read Bailey's description of how her snail moved, ate, slept, and reproduced, I felt myself shrinking and shrinking, like Alice in Wonderland, until I was snail-size myself." --Anne Fadiman
 
"I love [The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating ] with all my heart . . .  It's moving and beautiful . . . funny and sweet and wise and profound."  --Jane Hamilton
 
"With warmth and intelligence, Bailey observes this little mollusk at her bedside. Readers will find her mental journey remarkable and her courage irresistible. I am very taken with this small book." --Maxine Kumin
