The running of rivers, the wild geese returning, the bear cubs stepping out, and the peepers singing - this is the arrival of spring in the north country. Join all manner of north country animals as they respond in their own unique ways to the slow vanishing of the cold, dark winter. Reeve Lindbergh's verse captures the empowering voice of spring in language both poetic and precise, while Liz Sivertson's paintings are as spirited and free as the north itself. Together, poet and painter celebrate the wildness and beauty of a season that can never come too soon.
