      Thom…I hope it was clear that what’s available for purchase is a digital book, not a physical one! That said, talk to Ethan. :) And thank you!

    The book is amazing, Meera. Congratulations! I feel like I have been wandering in San Francisco; I hope to find experiences that will allow me to cherish it for however long as home.

    Moutainfit is Meera Lee Sethi’s memoir of how people interact with nature and each other while she was volunteering at the Lake Ånnsjön Bird Observatory in Sweden. The author also explores the inner landscape of her thoughts and emotions. Ancient world myths about magical talking birds are woven with scientific facts to exemplify how people often anthropomorphize what they do not understand about animal and avian behavior. The author jokes, “This is not a book about birds. Is it a book about birds?” Yes, it is a book about birds, but it is also about understanding ourselves. Words are not the only way to communicate. This book is smart, funny and educational.
