Her books include Refuge- An Unnatural History of Family and Place (1991), Finding Beauty in a Broken World (2008), When Women Were Birds (2012), and The Hour of Land- A Personal Topography of America's National Parks (2015). She is currently a writer in residence at the Harvard Divinity School.


"Beyond singsong delight, the pieces provide a fascinating index of the development of American literature through the centuries: why, one might ask, might authors now find birds a subject more fit for poetry than prose, where two centuries ago the opposite was true? In any case, the volume demonstrates that delight can come in small packages." -The New Criterion

"Evocative and absorbing. . . . All who read it will find their own favorites among the 74 appealing selections and will marvel at the many different ways to see, think about, describe, and cherish birds and their place in our lives." -The Urban Audubon

"An exquisite compendium celebrating America's ornithological obsession." -Kirkus Reviews
