    One thought on “The Miracle Season”

    1. This book was published in 1976 and is about a prophet crow trying to warn his fellow creatures about the relentless onslaught of mankind. When I reached the last quarter, I spent most of it with chills down my spine. I recognized what has been happening and what continues to happen - and author Linda Cline's recognition of what was to come made me think, "This woman was/is not only highly intelligent but is perhaps a prophet herself."I found the story when a dear friend loaned it to me only wee [...]

    2. Beautiful prose. Flowing, descriptive writing. A great story, and an ecological message. One of my all-time favorites!

    3. One of the best books I've read of this genre, possibly even better than Watership Down. The humanization of the animals is terrific, and the way the "tribal" information about crows is woven through the book is not only fascinating but educational as well. Even written so long ago, I think it is more viable today than the 70s when it came out. It would make a terrific film, animated or otherwise.

    4. Animals are the main characters of this environmentalist fantasy, and since the book was written by an animal trainer, I assume her descriptions of their world were really well researched. The characters and the way they relate to each other was certainly absorbing - at least for the first half of the book. About midway through, though, the plot just seemed to peter out. I've rated it a 3, but 2.5 would be more accurate. The promising beginning just didn't carry through to the end.
