In the company of light by John Hay( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Company of Light begins at the end of summer in Maine, when the swallows, harbor seals, and shore birds fly ahead of the "mind's ability to grasp them." Hay writes of the profound engagement of migration, and of the seasonal pull that has him restless to join "the great company of life on the planet." Hay's searching, visionary prose details a wealth of late-summer encounters: with a kingfisher providing "a blue opening into space" and with a weasel "made in order to chase its own life to the end of possibility." He returns at season's end to his Cape Cod home, to a landscape he has made his own for fifty years, where he discovers foxfire in the woodpile and the strange bioluminescence of the sunfish, which "carries its reflected light in the dark seas, like the mood between the clouds."

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ponders the phenomenon of bird songs and asks, "If the lyrics are simply 'mine, mine, mine, ' then why the extravagance of the score?" From Henry David Thoreau on the lisping tinkle of chickadees to Joseph Wood Krutch on the Arizona road runner and Edward O. Wilson's awed description of the spinning upside-down courtship dance of the New Guinea bird of paradise, these writings bring alive not only the dramatically exotic but also the gently prosaic aspects of bird life

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Hay has been acclaimed as one of the most significant contemporary nature writers and environmentalists. In Mind the Gap, which is at once an autobiographical memoir and a commentary on our place in the natural world, Hay recounts his path to becoming a writer and explores the literary and environmental influences that shaped his interest in nature." "Addressing subjects as diverse as the annual herring spawn, his friendship with writer Conrad Aiken, resident and migratory birds, local wildlife, his human neighbors, and the complex rhythms of life on the Cape, Hay's closely observed descriptions of his surroundings support his insightful comments on nature and our intricate relationship to it."--Jacket
