Flights of Imagination
Birds have inspired storytellers and scientists since the dawn of time, luring human observers into their irresistible world. This collection of twenty eloquent essays–including work by Jennifer Ackerman, John Hay, Bernd Heinrich, Trevor Herriot, Kenn Kaufman, Barbara Kingsolver, Dan Koeppel, Richard Mabey, Sandra Steingraber, and others–is a timeless evocation of our passion for birds. Illuminating and profound, the writing here reveals the numerous and often unexpected ways in which these alluring creatures–spiritual messengers, mythic symbols, personal obsessions, and even harbingers of environmental catastrophe–open our eyes to the knowledge that the natural and human worlds are one and the same.
