Reading Diane Ackerman’s book ‘Dawn Light and dancing with cranes, was a delight from start to finish. Like eating and savouring fine rich chocolate, one can only eat so much, so it took 6 weeks for to finish, this did not deter me in the least.

Dawn Light: Dancing With Cranes and Other Ways to Start the Da.

Dawn Light: Dancing With Cranes and Other Ways to Start the Day. Written by Diane Ackerman. Narrated by Laural Merlington. As a patient and learned observer of animal and human physiology and behavior, she introduces us to varieties of bird music and other signs of avian intelligence, while she herself "migrates" from winter in Florida to spring, summer, and fall in upstate New York. Humans might luxuriate in the idea of being "in" nature, Ackerman points out, but we often forget that we are nature-for "no facet of nature is as unlikely as we, the tiny bipeds with the giant dreams.

Beautiful words. Words that make you slow down and savor --- the words themselves, the phrases, and the pictures and feelings they evoke. I've been fighting with myself since the moment I finished the very first essay.

I'm only allowing myself an essay a day, and when I finished the first day's reading, I had a little leap of joy in my heart, picturing myself sharing the book. Normally, that's what I do --- pass a book along when I have finished reading it. (So many books, so little time. I rarely read one twice. Better it should move along to its next reader than gather dust on my shelf.) But, right after the leap, a backtracking, a remembering of the times when I have had to buy a replacement book for one that called me back to double check a quote or lesson. I'm afraid I'm going to have to keep this one.

And thus the battle began. To share, or not to share.....

This is a book that I want to share with all my friends and family. I have already given it to quite a few and recommended it to many.Diane Ackerman was introduced to me many years ago when my daughter was reading Moon by Whale Light. She said it was the kind of book that, after every few pages, you want to go shake someone by the shoulder and say, " Hey, listen to this!" Dawn Light is that kind of book too. Diane Ackerman's delight in the world of nature and art is truly inspirational. Her exuberance reminds one of the beauty that surrounds us if we would only stop to look and listen to the natural world and to the world of art. She is a national treasure.

such a beatiful use of language, take your time enjoying the amazing natural world as Diane Ackerman explains her interpretations

Rasmus
This is a book to be read, re-read, and then read once again. Ackerman's views of nature are enlightening, informative, and spiritually transcendental. Having read the book, I looked at daily miracles in a new way, using the scientific knowledge she incorporates to better understand things I'd before taken forgranted. I gave my copy of the book to my daughter who shares my delight in nature. I know I will buy myself another copy for a second and third read.

Reading Diane Ackerman’s book ‘Dawn Light and dancing with cranes, was a delight from start to finish. Like eating and savouring fine rich chocolate, one can only eat so much, so it took 6 weeks for to finish, this did not deter me in the least. An epiphany writer, her word combinations took my breath away. Two golden morsel’s I recall were, ‘Angri-la, that cold inner mountain place of the mind’ is how she described her anger. And that bees are related to Sunflowers because there is only one sun flower on the plant with the seeds for germination, the rest are florets and are like the drones that feed and support the one. Certainly a book to gift yourself, and others.

Her writing transports me.

Unhappy when reaching the end. Wanted to go on reading and fill my mind's eye and heart with the images and thoughts that Diane Ackerman gives so clearly of her experience of the world around and in us. Appreciate and at the same time a bit envious of her sensitivity and genius in describing what she sees and feels. Truly happy that she shares all this with us.

brilliant writer - very knowledgeable & presents her information beautifully a scientist and artist
