1 - 2 weeks availability


"Where Yet the Sweet Birds Sing" is a chronicle in the tradition of the nature essay and the spiritual journey. Over the course of a year, Richard Quinney kept a journal and took photographs of the passing seasons on his family farm in Walworth County, Wisconsin. Quinney, recently retired from a lifetime of university teaching, was being treated for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and by year's end was moving from one place to another. The family farm provided peace and solace, a reminder of times past, and a revelation of the wonders of the present.
