    Less about birds, as the author notes, than about impressions of life on the NC coast revealed by interactions with birds. And those impressions are well-rendered. Lembke has an entrancing writing style even on subjects that I couldn't care less about (which happened in a few of the essays.)

    A good used bookstore find, this is a slender collection of nature essays and observations about birds. The author takes the approach of a scholar rather than a birder--lots of classical references and philosophical musings. A bit dry at times, but definitely worth the read.

    Great book-Ms. Lembke gives a good overview of a year at her home on the Neuse River in South Carolina. I'm jealous. Ms. Lembke describes the American Beauty bush growing in the wild.

    I really love Lembke's writing. What a damn intelligent woman.

    I swear this book jumped of the library shelf at me as I walked through the stacks. How did it know?
