The Smallest Bird in North America

The Smallest Bird in North America

"With the observational eye of Charles Darwin and the soul of John Muir, Robert Grunst is a first-rate naturalist. He takes us on a journey of the flora and fauna of his life in the Midwest and West, from the orchards of Michigan, to the waves of Lake Superior, to the grasses of Wyoming. Grunst focuses on the small object--the smelt, the bat, the morning-glory, the peach and pickled pear--to open up the larger vistas of his landscapes. The Smallest Bird in North America flies an intricate course, carries us a long distance." --Mary Swander

"The Smallest Bird in North America may be read for its enchanted visions. Its charm is rooted in the poet's integrity, the 'conscience' of a man who has found what he loves. The book may be read, too, as the deposition of a man who intends to 'fish' his world, a world that, as he says, 'we'd have measure us so well.' Grunst's is an intelligence and an eye I've trusted for over two decades now. It is a pleasure to see this body of poetic vision realized." --Sandra McPherson
