The Life of the Skies: Birding at the End of Nature, by Jonathan Rosen

In Rosen’s meditative book, birding is just a jumping off point as he ranges widely across natural history, poetry, and an exploration of how going forth to seek nature inevitably changes not just us, but the nature we are seeking.  A birding book not just for birders.

If this topic interests you, come to the Newton Free Library on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at 7:30 pm., when ecologist and avian photographer Brooks Mathewson will present an illustrated program titled, An Evening with the Warblers.
