About the Author
Geoff Wisner is a board member of the Thoreau Society and the editor of THOREAU'S WILDFLOWERS (Yale) and THOREAU'S ANIMALS. (Yale). He earned a degree in English and American Literature from Harvard University, and has written for the Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, and The Wall Street Journal. Massachusetts artist Barry Van Dusen is the author and illustrator of FINDING SANCTUARY, based on visits to sixty-one of Mass Audubon's wildlife sanctuaries, nature centers, and museums. He is a strong proponent of working directly from life, even with difficult subjects such as wild birds. Peter Alden followed Thoreau's trails and bird notes growing up in Concord, where he still lives. He has authored fifteen bird/nature/travel books and has led wildlife tours to more than 100 countries. His Great Walden Bioblitzes have found 3,600 species within five miles of Walden Pond.
