Bird Portraits
0,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is called Bird Portraits because Mr. Seton-Thompsons pictures are always faithful and charming portraits of the birds which he draws. But since a birds portrait, no matter how accurate, can show its subject in only one position, singing, feeding, flying, or sitting, a short account of some of the main events of the birds life has been added to each picture. Any one who learns from such books as Mr. Seton-Thompsons how beset with perils is the life of every wild creature will take the greatest pains at all times, and especially in the nesting season, not only not to injure or persecute such defenseless little creatures as our song birds, but also to protect them in every way. Whoever seeks their acquaintance, in the spirit of friendship, will always be grateful for the interest and pleasure to be gained from such friends. Of the twenty birds whose portraits are here presented, a majority are only summer residents in the Northern States; some visit us only in winter; a few spend the whole year near the same spot. The birds which are first described are those that are most closely associated with the return of spring; then follow those whose gay colors and bright songs give much of its charm to early summer; last come those that brave, even in the North, the tempests of winter.

Bird Children
1,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

BIRDS are only another expression of Gods love, and we are told that not even a sparrow shall fall to the ground without the notice of the Father. Birds are poetry come to life and set to music. If you should stand at the edge of a forest at sundown and hear the birds singing their good-night songs, hear the sleepy little notes grow fainter and fainter until the silence came,-then when the dusk had deepened, you should hear the night birds begin their plaintive songs, you would realize what a different place our beautiful world would be without birds. Even in great cities we have always some birds. The saucy little sparrow, who comes so boldly begging crumbs at your window, likes the cities best. Only very thoughtless people, or those who do not understand, would harm or frighten a bird. They are real little people, and I am sure that when you have come to know them you will love them as much as you have learned to love the Flower Children..

A Bird in a Cage
14,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Bird in a Cage ist ein zweisprachiges Werk, das in den langen Jahren in Tokio in der Justizvollzugsanstalt von Georg Max Hüffner alias Dutch geschrieben wurde. Neben Gedichten und Lyrik sind darin Briefe an seine nächsten Angehörigen und Freunde enthalten, die einen Blick werfen auf die vielschichtige Gedankenwelt, die sich in Dutch entwickelte in seinem Käfig. Wenn man ihm zwar die körperliche Freiheit nehmen konnte, so hat seine gedankliche Freiheit ihn nie verlassen und in Träumen und Erinnerungen war er oftmals freier, als mancher Mensch, der in einer vermeindlichen Freiheit sich nicht in der Lage befindet, Zuflucht zu solch einer Weite des Geistes zu nehmen. Als bunter Vogel hat er einiges zu berichten, was das Leben und tiefe Einsichten über den Wert von Freundschaft und Liebe betreffen und er amüsiert den Leser mit seinem einfaltsreichen und feingeistigen Witz und einer frischen persönlichen Note, die diesem Werk seinen unnachahmlichen Charakter gibt... Alexander Rehe Georg Max Hüffner alias Dutch ist ein Mensch, den jeder kennt und lieben gelernt hat. Und das nicht nur im deutschsprachigen Raum. Seine Freunde verteilen sich überall auf der Welt, denn Dutch ist ein Globetrotter, wie man ihn sich vorstellt, ein Freak und Hippie der noch in Zeiten der Blumenkinder in Goa und dem Rest Indiens und Lateinamerikas unterwegs war und der seine Wurzeln somit weit über die Welt verankert hat, in fremde Kulturen und Gebräuche eintauchte und sich überall schnell integrierte. Dazu waren ihm sein Witz, seine darstellenden Fähigkeiten als Musiker, Sänger und Tänzer ebenso nützlich wie sein sonniges und allen wohlgesonnenes Gemüt. So ist Dutch zu einer lebenden Legende geworden und bereichert die Welt mit seinem unnachahmlichen Charme und Esprit... Alexander Rehe

Stray Birds
1,32 € *

1 STRAY birds of summer come to my window to sing and fly away. And yellow leaves of autumn, which have no songs, flutter and fall there with a sigh. 2 O TROUPE of little vagrants of the world, leave your footprints in my words. 3 THE world puts off its mask of vastness to its lover. It becomes small as one song, as one kiss of the eternal. 4 IT is the tears of the earth that keep her smiles in bloom. 5 THE mighty desert is burning for the love of a blade of grass who shakes her head and laughs and flies away. 6 IF you shed tears when you miss the sun, you also miss the stars. 7 THE sands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing water. Will you carry the burden of their lameness? 8 HER wistful face haunts my dreams like the rain at night.

The Childrens Book of Birds
1,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Childrens Book of Birds combines under a single cover the First and Second Books of Birds, originally published in 1899 and 1901 respectively and still popular with children in and out of school and with other beginners in the study of birds. The book is intended to interest young people in the ways and habits of birds and to stimulate them to further study. It has grown out of my experience in talking to schools. From the youngest kindergarten scholar to boys and girls of sixteen and eighteen, I have never failed to find young people intensely interested so long as I would tell them about bow the birds live. Some of the results of these talks that have come to my knowledge have been astonishing and far-reaching, such as that of one boy of seven or eight, who persuaded the village boys around his summer home to give up taking eggs and killing birds, and watch them instead, and who was dubbed Professor by his eager followers. The effect has always been to make children love and respect the living bird. It has therefore seemed to me that what is needed at first is not the science of ornithology,-however diluted,-but some account of the life and habits, to arouse sympathy and interest in the living bird, neither as a target nor as a producer of eggs, but as a fellow-creature whose acquaintance it would be pleasant to make.
