The End of the End...

Recommended Posts

While the author and subject sound both intriguing and dire, it is this passage from an interview which swayed me to add it to my reading list, "Birds are one of the few aspects of nature that will come to you. A bird will visit your backyard, and you can have an encounter. You may not know anything about where it came from, but there it is in your tree. Birds are, I think, the best remaining ambassadors from nature to the America we now live in. That’s why, even apart from their beauty and their dearness, there are strong environmentalist arguments for increasing bird awareness."

The book (of essays):  The End of the End of the Earth by Jonathon Franzen

The interview by Serena Renner appeared in the Jan. 7, 2019 Sierra Club Magazine:
