Description
In this inspiring sequence of personal meditations through the cycle of seasons, the poet, storyteller, and naturalist who gave us A Natural History of the Senses and The Zookeeper's Wife awakens us to the world at dawn. Diane Ackerman explores every aspect of daybreak, from bird and animal behavior to the incomparable quality of light that has long inspired such artists as Monet, and dawn rituals the world over. As a patient and learned observer of animal and human physiology and behavior, she introduces us to varieties of bird music and other signs of avian intelligence, while she herself "migrates" from winter in Florida to spring, summer, and fall in upstate New York.

"You're immersed in Ackerman's glorious prose, studded with arresting phrases and breathtakingly beautiful images.... Her gift to us is the sheer pleasure of seeing the world through her loving eyes."Washington Post

"These pieces are accessible and lyrically written, and they flow well, one after another, making reading the book a true pleasure. Ackerman's fans and readers who appreciate nature writing at its finest will love this."Library Journal (starred review)
