When you know "the other way to listen," you can hear wildflower seeds burst open, you can hear the rocks murmuring, and the hills singing, and it seems like the most natural thing in the world.
Of course it takes a lot of practice, and you can't be in a hurry...
In fact, most people never hear those things at all, but this book tells you about two people who did -- one who was very good at it and one who took a long time learning.
As in their other books, Byrd Baylor and Peter Parnall bring us close to the essence of the natural world. Thanks to their unique talents, their books are for us the experience about which they write and draw.
