What People are Saying About This

Mimi Hoppe Wolf

Karle Wilson Baker was ahead of her time in her passionate devotion of the observation of birds, sharing her delights and frustrations through a highly descriptive narrative that can be characterized as paintings with words. Her unabashedly anthropomorphic and engaging interpretations of the behaviors of familiar feathered friends are a delight to read, and her philosophical musings are sure to awaken or renew in the reader a deeper sense of appreciation for our avian neighbors and the real reasons we take such pleasure in observing them. The delightful drawings contributed by the author’s daughter, Charlotte Baker, add a sensitive charm to the work, providing a rare glimpse of days gone by.—Mimi Hoppe Wolf
