Birds and Bees, Sharp Eyes, and Other Papers

Book cover
By: (1837-1921)

John Burroughs' book, Birds and Bees, Sharp Eyes, and Other Papers, is a delightful collection of essays that capture the beauty and wonder of the natural world. Burroughs' writing is both poetic and informative, as he shares his observations and insights on a variety of topics, from birds and bees to landscapes and weather patterns.

One of the things that struck me most about this book is Burroughs' keen powers of observation. He has a sharp eye for detail and a deep appreciation for the intricacies of the natural world, which he conveys with eloquence and passion. Whether he is describing the intricate patterns of a bird's plumage or the delicate workings of a flower, Burroughs' writing is always vivid and engaging.

In addition to his descriptive powers, Burroughs also offers valuable insights into the ways in which humans interact with the natural world. He reflects on the ways in which our lives are intertwined with the lives of animals and plants, and on the importance of preserving and protecting the environment for future generations. His essays are a powerful reminder of the interconnectedness of all living things, and the importance of living in harmony with nature.

Overall, Birds and Bees, Sharp Eyes, and Other Papers is a captivating read that will appeal to anyone with an interest in the natural world. Burroughs' writing is both enlightening and inspiring, and his profound love for the beauty and diversity of the world shines through on every page. I highly recommend this book to nature lovers, environmentalists, or anyone looking for a thoughtful and uplifting read.

Book Description:
Probably no other American writer has a greater sympathy with, and a keener enjoyment of, country life in all its phases—farming, camping, fishing, walking—than has John Burroughs. His books are redolent of the soil, and have such "freshness and primal sweetness," that we need not be told that the pleasure he gets from his walks and excursions is by no means over when he steps inside his doors again. As he tells us on more than one occasion, he finds he can get much more out of his outdoor experiences by thinking them over, and writing them out afterwards. These essays are delightful stories about birds, bees, foxes, hounds, fruit (the apple), trees, squirrles and nature in general written by a man who loves watching them and writing about them.
