About this book

In twelve interwoven essays, Sam Keen, the New York Times best-selling author of Fire in the Belly, shares moments of spirituality and insight that he's experienced while bird watching. Keen has been blessed with moments of beauty that he interprets with wit, wisdom, and a bit of down-home philosophy. From his childhood ramblings in the Tennessee wilderness to a heartbreaking drive through Arizona to a stroll on the shore of Lake Michigan on his 70th birthday, here are meditations on such universal ideas as friendship, the nature of the soul, and the disappointment that comes with getting exactly what you want. Watercolour renderings of stunning birds such as the Indigo Bunting, the Lord God Bird, and the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker round out the collection, making Sightings a beautiful and inspiring volume.
