KIRKUS REVIEW

In his last flights as a pilot, in 1971 and 1972, Lindbergh carried Richard Brown, a young nature photographer who wanted to try aerial photography. Here, voicing her father's enthusiasms and concerns, Reeve Lindbergh provides hymn-like verse celebrating the joy of flight and, especially, the earth's beauty, as exemplified in these northern New England landscapes. The color photos are lovely; the carefully honed poetry makes an eloquent plea for preservation; and knowing that the great aviator also saw these vistas, while piloting, gives them a special power.
