Shown L to R: Susan Fox Rogers, When Birds Are Near, Katie Fallon, Eli Knapp

Editor Susan Fox Rogers talks writing and birds with contributors Katie Fallon & Eli Knapp. In this dazzling literary collection, writers explore and celebrate their lives with and love for birds―detailing experiences from Alaska to Bermuda, South Dakota to Panama.

Fresh new voices as well as seasoned authors offer tales of adventure, perseverance, and fun, whether taking us on a journey down Highway 1 to see a rare California Condor, fighting the destruction of our grasslands, or simply watching the feeder from a kitchen window.
