Updated: May 15


With Earth Day approaching on April 22, how we relate to nature and how we see the world around us become foremost in our thoughts. These seven memoirs of living alongside nature offer us an opportunity to look more deeply into both our humanity and the world we call home. 





When Sy Montgomery went to spend a day at falconer Nancy Cowan's farm, home to a dozen magnificent birds of prey, it was the start of a deep love affair. Nancy allowed her to work with Jazz, a feisty, four-year-old, female Harris's hawk with a wingspan of more than four feet.






A poignant and remarkable tale of friendship, growth, and coping with inevitable loss--and of how that loss can be transformed into meaning.
