From the New York Times bestselling author of H is for Hawk and winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for nonfiction, comes Vesper Flights, a transcendent collection of essays about the human relationship to the natural world. Animals don’t exist to teach us things, but that is what they have always done, and most of what they teach us is what we think we know about ourselves. In Vesper Flights, Helen Macdonald brings together a collection of her best-loved essays, along with new content ranging from nostalgia for a vanishing countryside to the tribulations of farming ostriches to her own private vespers while trying to fall asleep.

The book will be published on July 13 and is available for preorder now from Bookshop Santa Cruz.
