I devoured this in a couple of days, it was such a compassionate and compelling read. Harkness’ most recent breakdown, after many years of anxiety and depression, led him to nature, and most specifically the observation of birds. Medications and more traditional routes to recovery were just not working, and yet, the most simple of ways, to immerse oneself in nature seemed to be the way for Harkness to find a respite, and more importantly, a path to healing. This book delights in the beauty of nature, the importance of slowing oneself down and making those minute observations that give us connection with our world. I highly recommend this to all. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
