As a young girl, Florence Merriam Bailey fell in love with the outdoors, especially birds, whose songs and flight captivated her. She listened, waited, and watched to better understand her feathered friends, and wrote many books, including one of the first field guides to American birds. Her work ultimately led to better protection for birds and the scientific study of birds in nature. This book from A Life Made by Hand author Andrea D'Aquino, brings to life the story of a woman ahead of her time.
