Overview

Linda Johns writes about the wild birds that share her life—and her home—with a naturalist's eye and a poet's heart.

A successful painter and sculptor living in a woodland studio, Linda Johns has become widely known as the "Bird Lady" for her work in rescuing and caring for birds and other wildlife. She began by taking in the occasional wounded or orphaned bird that came her way; today she shares her home with an ever-shifting population of birds and other creatures, some of whom have moved in to stay.

In A Feathered Family, Johns writes lyrically about the natural world around her studio, and with great verve and humor about the feathered characters who visit or share her home. Each of them has a distinct personality, and Johns's storytelling gift brings them vividly to life.

Full of funny and affectionate stories, and enhanced by the author's drawings of many of her avian housemates, this charming book is a must-read for all wildlife lovers.
