Reviews

Barnes reminds readers to take time out to pay full attention to their natural surroundings in this earnest and accessible how-to guide. Barnes offers sound advice and educational information. Informative and useful, his manual should prove a valuable resource for any novice nature-philes interested in reveling in the 'wildness in us all.'
This fanciful yet grounded book is Barnes's clarion call for rediscovering the wild world of nature through simple actions and a reframed perspective. The short chapters and approachable tone should appeal to any nature lover, but especially for the budding naturalist.-- (09/15/2019)
Passionate, inviting, even lyrical. Barnes provides a companionable view of why we love birds, their lives, and futures.
[Barnes's] premise is that people need birds, and if we pay attention to them, they can help us understand the world we share.
Barnes explores our fascination with birds and the importance they have played in our understanding of the world, from Darwin's finches to the intercontinental migration of birds.
Barnes infuses this playful, conversational exploration of the relationship of birds to humanity with a sense of well-informed wonder. He demonstrates patient attention to the world around him, combining thoughtful scholarship with a skill for conveying particulars in accessible language. A generous volume.
A celebration, an exploration, and an exhibition. Educates, entertains, and sends hearts soaring as Barnes shares his knowledge of and devotion to his subject, his eloquence and his wisdom.
Glowing praise for birds from the prolific nature writer and novelist, who is filled with great affection and admiration for our feathered friends. The core message of this delightful book will appeal to birders everywhere.
