About this book

Painter John Wolseley and poet Barry Hill follow flight paths and habitats of birds, from the Victorian Mallee to the forests of South East Asia, to Japan and the South of France. Sometimes, as the painter says, its almost as if I am looking at the earth with a birds eye view, the birds suggest new ways of telling stories about the earth. This is a dazzling book, a conversation between two venerable artists in love with birds. In a world of endangered nature, they celebrate joy. They write: When a bird arrives in our midst, its presence signifies at least one clear thing: that it is not too late, not yet.
