96 pp, 9" H. "Naturalist, ornithologist, avocational archaeologist and poet, Winnipeg's Dr. Robert W. Nero has authored nine books dealing with his amazing spectrum of interests. (This) is the newest collection of poetry by this gifted writer, revealing his sensitivity and keen observation of the natural world. In his frequently passionate poetry, Nero plays tribute to his wife, Ruth, who has, over many years, encouraged Bob to write and to pursue his outdoor interests - all the while sharing him with Lady Grayl, the Great Gray Owl he found injured and starving in 1984. From that time on, Lady Grayl toured with Bob Nero to raise funds for numerous environmental projects and to educate thousands of children and adults about conservation." The book closes with a tribute to Lady Grayl. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.

82 pp, 9" H. "In this new collection of poems, noted naturalist-writer, Robert Nero, offers insightful reflections on a variety of birds, from peregrine falcons, great grey owls and common ravens to purple martins and orioles. We are also offered surprising glimpses of such diverse wildlife as frogs, chipmunks, shrews, ants, dragonflies and spiders. It is nature in all seasons that holds Dr. Nero's attention as he develops intriguing views of ordinary scenes and events. But the poems in this collection also speak of love, passion and introspection, thus revealing a deeper and increasingly personal side of one of Canada's most respected naturalists. A combination of scientific training and experience, along with ecological awareness and writer's craft, is brought to bear in this fine assortment of poems."
