Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The preeminent naturalist John Hay has gathered a collection of notable writings--encompassing myth, poetry, and natural history--into a glorious appreciation of birds. From Lucretius to Terry Tempest Williams, writers from many genres and periods explore the significance of birds in different and surprising ways.

Book News Annotation:

Naturalist John Hay collects poetry, natural history, and essays to create an intriguing view of the world of birds written by both classic and contemporary writers. Contributions are grouped into six categories: flight, the language of birds, art and ritual, birds and the American land, birds of the sea, and migrants.
