Overview

Author/artist Joan Harris shares inspiring stories, sprinkled with humor and fascinating natural history information in THE LEAST OF THESE.

As she did in her award-winning ONE WING'S GIFT: RESCUING ALASKA'S WILD BIRDS, Joan brings these gangly, delicate babies to life on the page in meticulously detailed, Audubon-like drawings. From Hurlly, a fuzzy, so-ugly-it's-cute baby buzzard, to impressive adult birds portrayed in spot art for reference, these drawings (and their accompanying stories) make this book an ideal gift for bird lovers of all ages. Included is an appendix of bird rescue centers and information on what to do if you find a baby bird.

THE LEAST OF THESE is the recipient of numerous awards, including:
2005 ASPCA® Henry Bergh Children's Book Award
Alaska Press Women's 2006 Communications Contest-First place
(Nonfiction) National Federation of Press Women 2006--Second place (Nonfiction)
