Birds Through Indigenous Eyes by Dennis Gaffin with Michael Bastine and John Volpe

Staff Pick


Spirited in every sense of the term, this three-part conversation on Natural Law fuses ornithology, mysticism, native beliefs, and more to present what may be a world-changing perspective for most mainstream Western readers. Gaffin, an anthropologist, and his friends Bastine and Volpe, a native healer and native animal rehabilitator, respectively, draw on indigenous beliefs and personal experience to show how birds, with their diverse songs, colors, and textures and their unique access to both earth and heaven, remind us of our innate connections with Nature and each other, helping us to restore the original balance we’ve disrupted by forgetting we’re one part of a larger harmony.
