Overview

Crow Planet: Essential Wisdom from the Urban Wilderness by Lyanda Lynn Haupt

There are more crows now than ever. Their abundance is both a sign of ecological imbalance and a generous opportunity to connect with the animal world. CROW PLANET is a call to experience the wildlife in our midst, reminding us that we don't have to head to faraway places to encounter "nature." Even in the cities and suburbs where we live we are surrounded by wildlife such as crows. Through observing them we enhance our appreciation of the world's natural order, and find our own place in it.

Haupt, a trained naturalist, uses science, scholarly research, myth, and personal observation to draw readers into the "crow stories" that unfold around us every day, culminating in book that transforms the way we experience our neighborhoods and our world.

With a spiritual sensitivity, the author exorts us to be aware of the natural world, to realize we are part of it, even in our paved-over cities. In re-connecting to the nature in her suburban neighborhood and her own back yard, she found healing and inspiration. I highly recommend this book.

Would have been nice to hear just about the crows instead of environmental rants - not recommended.
