Summary

Home bird: A person who likes to stay at home. For Laura Wainwright that home is Martha's Vineyard. Her essays celebrate the simple but profound pleasures that can be found by listening carefully to the voices of the natural world and the rhythms of each season. Walk with her to find lady's slippers or painted turtles in springtime. Join her in the barn across the road on a cold afternoon. Follow her as she cuts watercress, gathers scallops, casts for striped bass and then prepares some of her favorite recipes. With nuanced observations of everyday details, Wainwright shows how connecting to the complexity and beauty of the natural world can ground us and help us uncover deeper meaning in our lives. The book includes eight recipes.
