About this book

A frequent commentator on NPR's All Things Considered, Julie Zickefoose has painted nature virtually all her life. At the age of seven she knew that she wanted to paint birds for a living, and her lifelong dedication shows in her paintings, which are meticulously accurate as well as beautiful. The paintings used here, of scenes from her beloved home in southern Ohio, illuminate well-crafted essays based on her daily walks and observations. Wild turkeys, coyotes, box turtles, and a bird-eating bullfrog flap, lope, and leap through her prose. She excels at describing and exploring interactions between people and animals, bringing her subjects to life in just a few lines. Her husband and young children make appearances, presenting their own challenges and pleasures. The essays are arranged by season, starting with winter, providing a sense of movement through the year.

Media reviews

"[...] Letters From Eden: A Year at Home, in the Woods is a wonderful collection of essays and art. If you have read and enjoyed The Bluebird Effect, then I would highly recommend this, its predecessor. But if not, then I’d suggest starting with Bluebird."
- Grant McCreary (27-01-2013), read the full review at The Birder's Library

"Zickefoose finds [a connection with nature] often and documents it in words and paintings in her beautiful new book."
- Cleveland Plain Dealer
