About this title


This lyrical, deceptively simple tale about a baby robin who is born in the backyard of a longtime birdwatcher is told with wry humor and keen attention to the details of the natural world. Depicted is Robin Ray's struggle to survive the perils of youth and predators, her sometimes troubling relations with eccentric but wise elders who counsel her as she matures, and her harrowing, liberating journey during migration, which both threatens her and delivers her into adulthood. Constantly present is the loving human who nurtures her through her life cycle. Its centerpiece is an enduring vision of reunion, reconciliation, and unity, in which living beings are exquisitely bound in alliance to one another and to the earth in a joyous, fragile community.

About the Author:

Virginia Morris Briggs is an environmentalist who has written extensively for environmental and energy-technology companies. She lives in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California.
