A Sweet, Wild Note: What We Hear When the Birds Sing
Author
Richard Smyth

9781783963775
In this fascinating account, Richard Smyth asks what it is about birdsong that we so love. Exploring the myriad ways in which it has influenced literature, music, science, and our very ideas of what it means to be human, Smyth's nuanced investigation shows that what we hear says as much about us, our dreams and desires, as it does about the birds and their songs. At a time when our birdsong is growing quieter, with fewer voices, more thinly spread, A Sweet, Wild Note is a celebration of the complex relationships between birds, people, and the land; it is also a passionate call to arms lest our trees and hedgerows fall silent.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Richard SmythPublisher: Elliott & ThompsonPublished: 02/01/2019ISBN: 9781783963775Pages: 208Weight: 0.48lbsSize: 7.70h x 5.00w x 0.70d
