Description

PUBLISHED BY RA PRESS. ""The writing of David Crews in Wander-Thrush is as evocative as a Hudson River School painting that uses words instead of oil and canvas. These essays are a history lesson, a naturalist's field journal and an elegiac personal tribute to the Adirondack Park, one of the world's great natural treasures. Wander-Thrush is poetry in narrative form, which will help even people who have never been to the Adirondacks imagine this wild, hardscrabble and unforgettable terrain of mountains, bogs and birdsong."" -Darryl McGrath, author of Flight Paths: A Field Journal of Hope, Heartbreak, and Miracles with New York's Bird People.

Praise For Wander-Thrush

From the Author of High Peaks

“The writing of David Crews in Wander-Thrush is as evocative as a Hudson River School painting that uses words instead of oil and canvas. These essays are a history lesson, a naturalist’s field journal and an elegiac personal tribute to the Adirondack Park, one of the world’s great natural treasures. Wander-Thrush is poetry in narrative form, which will help even people who have never been to the Adirondacks imagine this wild, hardscrabble and unforgettable terrain of mountains, bogs and birdsong.”

-Darryl McGrath, author of Flight Paths: A Field Journal of Hope, Heartbreak, and the Miracles with New York’s Bird People

“In Wander-Thrush, David Crews helps understand the human forces that re-shaped the Adirondack landscape, nurturing within us an appreciation that transcends its value as a place to play. It must remain a place to dream, a place of refuge from the cares of a troubled world. We must learn to see the Adirondacks as David does—as a place where every sound of nature is a concordant note in the song of life.”

-William C. Janeway, Executive Director, The Adirondack Council
