Weekly Book Review 26 Nov. The birds became fellow creatures; a mouse nesting inside her radio actually sang to her, and in a revelation she understood her vocation: nature writing. May contain limited notes, underlining or highlighting that does affect the text. A better book, I think, than her first books like Beetle Rock and Teton March, etc. Now that I am not and have seen a portion of life, these clear-eyes tales of the lives of small creatures are more than enough. A summer spent in Alaska's Norton Sound, describing the creatures who congregate on ice floes and tundra beaches to breed and frolic in a brief period when the sun never sets. She has an almost magical ability to bring wild creatures to life with her literary renditions of their world allowing us to get inside that world and live it briefly.

This is a great book--translucent prose better than almost any novelist; clear observation of the condition of life; great knowledge of the specifics of the lives of these specific Alaskan animals; great compassion.
