A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! “Every bit as beautiful and healing as the season itself. . . . This is truly a beautiful book.” —Elizabeth Gilbert "Proves that there is grace in letting go, stepping back and giving yourself time to repair in the dark...May is a clear-eyed observer and her language is steady, honest and accurate—capturing the sense, the beauty and the latent power of our resting landscapes." —Wall Street Journal “May writes beautifully….A contemplative, hopeful, consoling book.” —NPR An intimate, revelatory book exploring the ways we can care for and repair ourselves when life knocks us down. Sometimes you slip through the cracks: unforeseen circumstances like an abrupt illness, the death of a loved one, a break up, or a job loss can derail a life. These periods of dislocation can be lonely and unexpected. For May, her husband fell ill, her son stopped attending school, and her own medical issues led her to leave a demanding job. Wintering explores how she not only endured this painful time, but embraced the singular opportunities it offered. A moving personal narrative shot through with lessons from literature, mythology, and the natural world, May's story offers instruction on the transformative power of rest and retreat. Illumination emerges from many sources: solstice celebrations and dormice hibernation, C.S. Lewis and Sylvia Plath, swimming in icy waters and sailing arctic seas. Ultimately Wintering invites us to change how we relate to our own fallow times. May models an active acceptance of sadness and finds nourishment in deep retreat, joy in the hushed beauty of winter, and encouragement in understanding life as cyclical, not linear. A secular mystic, May forms a guiding philosophy for transforming the hardships that arise before the ushering in of a new season.

Band recoveries from mallards banded in breeding and wintering areas, weighted to reflect the population sizes the represent, were wintering areas to the harvest in each State and Province. Sources of population data in addtiion to conventional waterfowl breeding population surveys were utilized resulting in larger continent-wide population estimates than those previously published. The estimates of the relative importance of various breeding and wintering areas to the kill in each State and Province are presented in a series of tables. Patterins among States in the similarity or the dissimilarity in the source of harvest are mentioned.

Rosemary Blake's Wintering is a thoughtful collection of poems of landscape and memory. The poems recall a childhood filled with the loss of a beloved father, but also with the light and beauty of the Australia landscape. Canada provides a way of seeing into this past with its loss and longing; a way which explores the contrast of the seasons, the reversals of winter and summer and the particular beauty of the Canadian landscape. The poet comes to see this country, no longer as a metaphor for longing, but with wonder.Wintering is an outstanding first book of poems, certain to receive a warm reception.

The relationships between canvasback (Aythya valisineria) breeding, wintering, and harvest areas were examined by analyzing banding data. Although canvasbacks wintering throughout North America come from the same general production areas, those wintering on the Pacific coast have a stronger relationship to western production areas, notably Alberta, than those wintering on the east coast, which come primarily from Manitoba and Saskatchewan. East and west coast wintering populations have different harvest patterns. The west coast population is harvested in relatively few areas, and the kill is more heavily concentrated on the wintering grounds. Canadian harvests of the west cost wintering populations are concentrated in Alberta, while those of the east coast wintering population are concentrated in Manitoba.

This is the story of a woman forging a new life for herself after her marriage has foundered, shutting up her beloved Devonshire house and making a home for her two young children in London, elated at completing the collection of poems she foresees will make her name. It is also the story of a woman struggling to maintain her mental equilibrium, to absorb the pain of her husband's betrayal and to resist her mother's engulfing love. It is the story of Sylvia Plath. In this deeply felt novel, Kate Moses recreates Sylvia Plath's last months, weaving in the background of her life before she met Ted Hughes through to the disintegration of their relationship and the burst of creativity this triggered. It is inspired by Plath's original ordering and selection of the poems in Ariel, which begins with the word 'love' and ends with 'spring,' a mythic narrative of defiant survival quite different from the chronological version edited by Hughes. At Wintering's heart, though, lie the two weeks in December when Plath finds herself still alone and grief-stricken, despite all her determined hope. With exceptional empathy and lyrical grace, Moses captures her poignant, untenable and courageous struggle to confront not only her future as a woman, an artist and a mother, but the unbanished demons of her past.

This companion volume to The Atlas of Breeding Birds of Britain and Ireland is derived from surveys of birds present in Britain and Ireland during the three winters, 1981/82, 1982/83 and 1983/84. The surveys were organised by the British Trust for Ornithology and the Irish Wildbird Conservancy, as were the earlier breeding birds surveys. The Winter Atlas maps 200 species, 192 of which have full-page two-colour maps faced by a page of text. The texts (written by over 100 specialists) comment on the survey results, the species generally and the distribution and abundance as mapped. In addition there are introductory chapters on the maps, the weather in the three winters, bird patterns and movements; and appendices describing the planning, organisation, field methods, and processing of the survey data from record cards to computer output and maps. A team of 23 artists, led by Robert Gillmor, has provided the line drawings which head the species accounts. This is a print-on-demand edition of the Atlas. It is a black and white reproduction of the original two-colour book.
