About this deal

Coming to terms with his mother’s death was challenging for Charlie: the grief went on to trigger other emotions, including anxiety and the black dog of depression. From solitary skylarks to squabbling sparrows, he explores the place of these birds in our history, culture and landscape, noting what they look like and where you're most likely to meet them. He found that through reconnecting with the wildlife all around him, the grief that once felt insurmountable he could now overcome. The ability to comment on our stories is a privilege, not a right, however, and that privilege may be withdrawn if it is abused or misused.

Losing our connection with nature makes it harder to understand that: ‘we are less able to deal with it today because we are less connected to the earth moving around the sun. His life had lost that link with nature – his reconnection with the natural world helped to make sense and move on. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. From solitary skylarks to squabbling sparrows, he explores the place of these birds in our history, culture and landscape, noting what they look like and where you’re most likely to meet them. The soaring, rolling, cascading music rippling through the air above me was like an injection of neat hope to the soul,’ Charlie remembers in the book’s opening chapter.In a moment of despair, he found himself – somewhat damp – lying on the side of a lonely hill staring up at a leaden sky, a melancholy drizzle seeping into his bones. We at Penguin Random House Australia acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Custodians and the first storytellers of the lands on which we live and work. His memoir is a heartfelt ode to the birds that helped him through the darkest of times, exploring in beautiful, lyrical detail this journey of rediscovery, and shows us there is joy to be found in the smallest of events, if we know where to look, and to listen.

No longer the leading role in his own private melodrama, but merely a minor part in nature's great epic. Recognising his perspective on life was slipping following his mother's untimely death, Charlie turned to the rhythms of the natural world for comfort and solace - in particular its birds. By reconnecting with the wildlife all around him, through learning to understand, love, and begin to move with the rhythms of the natural world outside his door, Charlie discovered nature's powerful ability to heal. Through twelve characterful birds, Charlie show us that there is joy to be found in the very smallest of events - if we know where to look, and how to listen. It’s a connection with nature that has been loosening ever since the Industrial Revolution, Charlie suggested.I think most of us suffer from it,’ he argued, ‘it’s part of the cycle, part of the human condition. We honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' continuous connection to Country, waters, skies and communities.
