Grass, Sky, Song : Promise And Peril In World Of Grassland Birds, Paperback / softback Book

Grass, Sky, Song : Promise And Peril In World Of Grassland Birds Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Published to wide acclaim, this beautiful meditation on the fate of grassland birds has been praised for its profound wisdom and lyrical grace.

Herriot, in a narrative that is at once intimate and informative, argues for the essential nature of these tiny creatures.

He invites us into the unique world of dedicated scientists, passionate naturalists and such historical figures as 19th-century botanist John Macoun, the last naturalist to see the Great Plains in its pre-settlement grandeur. Now in a beautiful paperback edition with flaps, illustrated with the author's delicate black-and-white drawings, Grass, Sky, Song is a blending of personal experience, history, philosophy and scientific research.

Filled with evocative "sidebar" descriptions of threatened birds, from the sharp-tailed grouse to the chestnutcollared longspur, this graceful book demonstrates why Trevor Herriot is regarded as one of Canada's finest non-fiction writers.
