Product description

Review

"The Running Sky has the makings of a classic. It's beautifully written, extraordinarily vigilant, and very moving...as we read it, we learn a lot about ourselves as well as the fellow creatures flying through, over and around our own lives" (Andrew Motion)

"Its author has a forensic eye for detail and a gift for poetry...an intimate and erudite account... he is in the front rank of contributors to the literature of natural history" (Daily Telegraph)

"Serious and playful...creates a powerful and intensely poetic paean to what others have called the wonder of birds" (Guardian)

"A beautifully haunting and involving memoir. The writer's passion for birds becomes his way of expressing his whole relationship to landscape and history and family: unsentimental and urgently contemporary" (Tessa Hadley)

"Dee's extraordinary, beautifully written account of a life spent watching birds is a fine addition to the flourishing genre of British nature writing" (Sunday Times)

Book Description

An extraordinary, inspiring book about a lifetime of observing birds, already acclaimed as a classic.
