BIRDING WITH YEATS by Lynn Thomson
This beautifully wrought memoir from Toronto bookseller Lynn Thomson is a reflection on motherhood, family life and the joys of nature. Her teenage son Yeats, struggling to find his own way against the pressures to conform, has always found solace in the natural world. As mother and son discover a mutual love for bird watching, they embark on wondrous trips from the Wye Marsh and Pelee Island to Vancouver Island and the Galapagos. With each bird-watching expedition, they grow closer, but at the same time, Lynn feels her son starting to pull away, and she knows it’s time to let him go.
