This is a book to learn from, get lost in, refer to, to re-turn to, a capsule of the mystery of nature’s design.
A favorite line: “Every secret Moon needs, / she carries inside.” which refers to the learning from parents and that mystery still unsolved as to how birds know where to migrate...
Laura’s book takes me to a beautiful lake full of natural sights and sounds.
Secrets of the Loon is a must-read for budding ornithologists… also a treat for the rest of us who wish we could visit a cold lake and listen to these amazing birds.
Salas’s poetry rhymes with a lovely effortlessness that keeps the focus on the loons…[Dayton’s] clear and brilliant photos layer together to form forests, lakes, trees, reeds and more.
The book has a magical feel to it. It’s one I know I’ll read again and again.
