Description

Written in the tradition of Peter Matthiessen’s classic The Wind Birds, John Weier's Marshwalker: Naturalist Memoirs conveys the biological and behavioural intricacies of marsh life without dulling their romance and splendour. The memoir is a month-by-month study of a large prairie marsh with its many inhabitants. Weier’s meditative observation of birds and their cyclical existence is underscored by his own personal narrative. Marshwalker is both a book on the birds and wildlife of the marsh and a poetic exploration of the other intricacies of life. Reading the words of this earth-lover, we share his wonder at the quiet, profound beauty of the natural world.
