Oh Ed, you are right! They are gorgeous!! I could watch birds all day, they entertain better than anything man has made. Thank you for pointing me to this. Just awesome. Is there a picture in there that shows them looking down on the wings? I would love to have the use of it with your permission of course and a literary kudos for letting me use it. I am soooo happy you showed me this beautiful bird. Thank you!!!

I've been planning to buy this one for my summer reading since I belatedly discovered it a month ago. Now I have to await until I get to my sisiter's in Vermont where I will order it for my summer porch reading. I once read "A Sand Country Almanac" back in the 1970's by Aldo Leopold. I think you live in Wisconsin or go there a lot and this may be the 21st century poetic update to that book. (it's poetry isn't it?) Whatever though there may be some painful realities, I'm hoping to re-connect with my ecological roots as a naturalist... We'll see. And yes I too blame "greedy" cooperations for much. But who's mirror is that we're looking into? That of greedy American citizens who until gas peaked at $4 a gallon thought SUVs were just dandy. Now we must trim our boat when we should've done it voluntarily to save all life. Luckily, I've always driven economy cars (read: Honda civic) But Looking forward to it...

Reviewed by Mr. Ed 4/3/2008
Where the Redwing Sings is a spiritual hike through the great American nature scene, its struggling remainders, the ghosts of its former glory, and the fading promise of its dubious future.

A nature lover can’t read this book without both feeling a lump in the throat and rejoicing in its splendid prose and poetry. These scintillating literary snippets and cuttings are either collected from nature loving giants of the past or are convincingly invented by Ed Kostro. He also gathers an impressive array of data facts, and then artistically narrates this wondrous perambulation through the fascinating world of earth’s pressured non-human denizens.

The back cover copy reads: “A book of nature inspired poems and essays, written from the heart and soul of a life-long nature, animal, and wilderness lover, and dedicated to today’s children. The words and thoughts expressed in this book reflect both an ardent love of our natural world, and a profound sadness at its modern day demise.”



Ed Kostro has been featured in Catholic Digest, Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul, Cats Do It Better Than People, The Almanac for Farmers & City Folk, Pets: Part of the Family, and Pet’s Life. He has now published six books, including Curious Creatures-Wondrous Waifs, My Life With Animals (awarded a Certificate of Excellence in the 2004 International Cat Writer’s Association Communications Contest), and Through Katrina’s Eyes, Poems From an Animal Rescuer’s Soul (2006 Merial Corporation Human-Animal Bond Award).

Along with Ed, I cry at the wanton losses occurring at every turn in the natural world. This book in many ways encapsulates the conscience of naturalists and naturalism. But as wonderful an impression as this little book made on me, I do have one critical complaint — the same that I have with many, if not most, of my fellow nature enthusiasts. I’m not sure I would entirely blame “greedy corporations” for the decline of the natural world. I think we have to look to the sources of their business to find the real culprits. But that is the subject for a different article.

With this critique stated, let me urge the reader to acquire Where the Redwing SIngs and enjoy its haunting beauty for a nature guided emotional experience. I give it four and a half stars.

Our wonderful wilderness is brought to life in Ed's latest book:
WHERE THE REDWING SINGS

With his poetry and prose graciously melded into each chapter, Ed
Kostro is able to transport us to the various and beautiful locales of
blissful peace: our wetlands, forests, lakes, mountains, and wilderness.
His Introduction alone will, hopefully, startle the reader's mind with
awakening.
At a time when the world seems more intent on desecrating our Earth
than on saving its creation, this author brings forth sound reasoning of duty by all mankind to preserve our gracious gifts.

From the beginning "Where the Redwing Sings", attending "The
Cathedral in the Pines", through "Thoughts of Hiawatha I and II, and
"Cries in the Night", you will be mesmerized by the author's
understanding of our natural habitats, the creatures large and
small, and our winged wonders.

A conscience-awakening book that is a must to be owned, read, and
shared with children and grandchildren.

What're you waiting for?
