About the author
Living on the north coast of California, Barbara feels fortunate to be surrounded by giants of the earth. Cloud-piercing Redwoods, and majestic Whales visible from the coast, are constant reminders of kinship with beings who dwarf her life's preoccupations. Astonished by the mystery of connection, she has seen and heard marbled murrelets streaking across Prairie Creek meadow, ferrying shrimp and squid from the ocean to their young in redwood canopy nests many miles away. Perhaps most poignant is the thought that all these magnificent beings now need humans to protect their survival.
