Annotation "In Vesper Flights Helen Macdonald brings together a collection of her best loved essays, along with new pieces on topics ranging from nostalgia for a vanishing countryside to the tribulations of farming ostriches to her own private vespers while trying to fall asleep. Meditating on notions of captivity and freedom, immigration and flight, Helen invites us into her most intimate experiences: observing songbirds from the Empire State Building as they migrate through the Tribute of Light, watching tens of thousands of cranes in Hungary, seeking the last golden orioles in Suffolk's poplar forests. She writes with heart-tugging clarity about wild boar, swifts, mushroom hunting, migraines, the strangeness of birds' nests, and the unexpected guidance and comfort we find when watching wildlife. By one of this century's most important and insightful nature writers, Vesper Flights is a captivating and foundational book about observation, fascination, time, memory, love and loss and how we make sense of the world around us." -- Goodreads. -- Some violence and some strong language. Spanish language. 2021. --- "Helen Macdonald ha reunido una serie de textos sobre la relación de los seres humanos con el medio natural como si este libro fuera uno de aquellos gabinetes de curiosidades que proliferaron en la Europa del siglo XVI, y en los que se podían ver objetos fascinantes y sorprendentes. Así, el lector asistirá a una sesión de observación ornitológica desde un rascacielos de Nueva York, un paseo nocturno por un bosque británico o el debate sobre la pertinencia o no de las reservas naturales. La autora combina con maestría la mirada científica y la literaria, reflexiona sobre temas ecológicos y humanos -el amor, el dolor, la superación de la pérdida, la búsqueda de la belleza-, evoca vivencias y nos habla sin tópicos del fascinante mundo de la fauna y la flora. Un libro luminoso y cautivador." -- Goodreads. -- Traducido de la edición en inglés de 2020. Contiene algo de lenguaje ofensivo y algunas descripciones de violencia.
