The Song of the Sparrow takes us into the identification and basic care of our backyard friends and then goes beyond. Find out how to keep them happy and returning to your yard. Learn to listen to them and hear what they are telling you. Birds are God's messengers to mankind. They are in the Bible, carrying His words to us. And they are with us everyday, reminding us that just as God sees and loves the little sparrow so, too, does He see and love each one of us. The Song of the Sparrow was born out of Pamela Kern's personal experience with a special bird visitation in her backyard. Soon she heard of others who had also been so blessed. She has gathered these stories and more so you, too, can hear the birds sing!

Shinkichi Takahashi is one of the truly great figures in world poetry. In the classic Zen tradition of economy, disciplined attention, and subtlety, Takahashi lucidly captures that which is contemporary in its problems and experiences, yet classic in its quest for unity with the Absolute. Lucien Stryk, Takahashi's fellow poet and close friend, here presents Takahashi's complete body of Zen poems in an English translation that conveys the grace and power of Takahashi's superb art. "A first-rate poet . . . [Takahashi] springs out of some crack between ordinary worlds: that is, there is some genuine madness of the sort striven for in Zen." -- Robert Bly; "We visit places in Takahashi that we once may have visited in a dream, or in a moment too startling to record the perception. . . . You need know nothing of Zen to become immersed in his work. You will inevitably know something of Zen when you emerge." -- Jim Harrison, American Poetry Review
