Life is always more powerful than death, and its seeds of hope take root when we learn to observe nature with an open mind and heart. They sprout in unexpected marvel and joy for the hidden beauty that surrounds us.
We hardly stop to think about the flights of swallows or the flowering of Veronicas, toads in love, or clairvoyant woodpeckers. But observing the marvels of nature is an art accessible to everyone, not just the great artists it has roused; Giovanni Pascoli praised the periwinkle, John Keates the nightingale, and Farid al-Din Attar the hoopoe. In these informative, entertaining and philosophical essays, naturalist and acclaimed writer Susanna Tamaro teaches us to decipher the language of swallows and comprehend the behavior of blackbirds, to love some insects and avoid others, and to respect the rhythm of seasons which never fail to guide and inspire.
