In compact, lyrical essays, Margaret Renkl captures the fleeting brutal beauty of life. Renkl's keen observations of suburban nature -- birds, butterflies, and brambles -- give depth and texture to the narrative she shares about her parents, her daily life, and her child's clear-eyed curiosity. Like Helen Macdonald's H IS FOR HAWK, Renkl's LATE MIGRATIONS reads as a grief memoir bound up with deeply attentive nature writing. Renkl's poetic prose is accompanied by lovely illustrations from her brother, Billy Renkl. - Trista

As a new birder, I have tried about a half dozen guides. The Kaufman's is the best! The primary reason I love this guide is the pictures. The angles shown are from your point of view, and there are great little hints illustrating the unique markers each bird has. I also cannot say enough about the range maps. They are with each species so there is no flipping back to the front or forward the end, and the color coding makes sense. Basically, the Kaufman Field Guide to Birds of North America is the guide I would make using the best pieces of other guides. You will not need another guide. - randy

Just how intimate is the connection between humans and "the wild"? To what degree are we linked? Opposed? Helen McDonald knew her true calling by the age of 8 was hawks and whatever else was in her life, she knew she would learn to work and hunt with falcons. But it wasn't until the death of her beloved co-adventurer in life, her father, that she got the primal call to work with the most prehistorically fierce and huge bird of all, the goshawk. I was utterly rapt, pun intended. Rather than the very tired trope of "man against nature", in H IS FOR HAWK, we have the tale of two complex females--one human and one avian--and their transformational dance of intimacy. As a bonus to the reader, McDonald manages to come to terms with her grief over losing her father and intersperse her own goshawk adventure with T.H. White's, all in beautifuuly rendered prose. So good! - Kris
