‘Wonderful’ Sunday Telegraph
‘In the manner of the best new nature writing … [Heinrich’s] own story is as interesting and relevant as that of bees, beavers, and a pair of sandhill cranes that he knows as Millie and Roy … This combination of biology and psychology makes for a lively, knowledgeable narrative.’ The Times
Praise for Bernd Heinrich:
‘Heinrich, who combines his keen scientific eye with the soul of a poet, enthralls.’ New York Times
‘One of the finest living examples of that strange hybrid: the science writer.’ Los Angeles Times
