A mixture of memoir, nature writing, history, and philosophy,The Life of the Skiesis an illuminating look at the complex relationship humans have with their flying counterpart--and a history of America viewed on the wing. An urban birder himself, Rosen roams far from his home birding base of New York's Central Park: searching for the ivory-billed woodpecker in the Louisiana swamp, following Thoreau, Audubon, and Teddy Roosevelt on their own historic birdwatching adventures; and discovering in the skies an intersection between science, history, and faith. Exhilarating, hopeful and wise,The Life of theSkiesis "a tribute to the natural world and man's place in it" (Bloomberg News).

Jonathan Rosen is the author of Eve's Apple and the culture editor of the Forward. He lives in New York City.
