Published: Milkweed Editions - July 9th, 2019

This beautifully illustrated book is a wonder, a cross between epistles on nature (delving anywhere from the bloodthirstiness of house wrens to the haunting beauty of a pond's loss to rapacious waterlilies) and a memoir, where tales of great and little loves happen on a daily basis. This book is one to savor in pieces, so you can think, reflect, and revisit sections. Late Migrations is for anyone who loved Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

This story starts out with the author rescuing a near-to-starvation retired race horse. Once gaining each other's trust, the two begin to show support and love for one another. Thinking she would do the rescuing only surprised her more when the horse saved her and helped mend her broken heart.Incredibly heroic, full of heart and soul. ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice

Published: W. W. Norton & Company - July 17th, 2006

This beautifully written and enrapturing book is a sheer delight. Logan, an arborist in NYC, takes us through not only the natural wonders of oak trees, but their centrality to human civilization. He moves seamlessly from the nutritional value of acorns and how early humans probably lived on these, the ubiquity of tree, forest and oak-derived surnames, the similarities between Viking ships and dolphins, massive Neolithic floating islands, and the exquisite skill of coopers who make barrels, and the still-confounding wonders of Medieval oaken roofs. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
