A Million Years with You: A Memoir of Life Observed
Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

There is no doubt about it: Elizabeth Marshall Thomas has led a fascinating, full life. Now in her eighth decade, she tells her story, which includes teen years in the Kalahari Desert while her parents searched for Bushmen. Not even marriage and motherhood and putting her husband through graduate school hampered her sense of adventure and zest for observation. On assignment for The New Yorker, she lived in Nigeria (taking her dogs with her) during the uprisings that plagued that African country, then went to Uganda as Idi Amin was taking over. She spent time on Canada’s remote Baffin Island studying wolves. And in 1993, she wrote The Hidden Life of Dogs, the first dog book to sell 1,000,000 copies. All that, and much more, is on this remarkable woman’s resume.
