Editorial Review

Jon Young knows birds, and you will too after reading his marvelous book. You ll discover a universal bird language that will speak to you wherever you go outdoors. Every nature lover should read this book. Joseph Cornell, author of "Sharing Nature with Children" and "John Muir: My Life with Nature" A lifelong birder, tracker, and naturalist, Jon Young is guided by three basic premises: the robin, junco, and other songbirds know everything important about their environment, be it backyard or forest; by tuning in to their vocalizations and behavior, we can acquire much of this wisdom for our own pleasure and benefit; and the birds companion calls and warning alarms are just as important as their songs. Deep bird language is an ancient discipline, perfected by Native peoples the world over, and science is finally catching up. This groundbreaking book unites the indigenous knowledge, the latest research, and the author s own experience of four decades in the field to lead us toward a deeper connection to the animals and, in the end, a deeper connection to ourselves. Jon Young is one of the heroes of the new nature movement . . . This elegant book will deepen the kinship between humans and other species. It decodes our common language. Richard Louv, author of "The Nature Principle" and "Last Child in the Woods" A brilliant work, born of a lifetime of listening, teaching, and tracking what really matters . . . Jon Young s work replenishes our humanity. David Abram, author of "Becoming Animal" and "The Spell of the Sensuous""
