"One, you spelled my name incorrectly," she mews sharply. "Two, your vocabulary consists only of vulgar phrases, which reflects on your intelligence. I know a 5 year old who has a broader vocabulary than you do."~{Flameflower}~

Jonathan Rosen does a beautiful job of blending history, literature and a love of birds, in this magnificent book. I don't want to give anything away; I would prefer that people dig into this book, and see for themselves. But suffice it to say that I was enlightened about Audubon, Thoreau and Emerson. i've been a birder for over 20 years, have studied birds, gone on birding vacations and have participated in many official bird counts for decades. Yet I learned from this book, which was obviously researched thoroughly. As much as I have loved our feathered friends for years, I came away from reading this book, with an even stronger realization of how we are all connected, and in this together; we are all part of the tapestry of life. It's one of those books that you don't want to end. It remains a part of you.

This is a book to keep by the bedside always. Opening at random is a delight, erasing all the challenging, disruptions in life. I feel whole again when I read Rosen's book. He is a 19th century mystic and walks beside Thoreau and Emerson..... and he brings me along on that much needed walk. Thank you Jonathan.
