              When the sun rises, it lifts the curtain on the horizon, ushering in a brand-new day. And like a new day, each horizon is original. Sun, clouds, sky, water, even skyscrapers shape the distance and offer us new views and the chance to think about what lies beyond. Renowned poet an...d author Jane Yolen gives us her insights on horizons great and small in fourteen new poems. Inspired by Jason Stemple's stunning photographs of vistas found in deserts, swamps, mountains, and other scenic places, Ms. Yolen, in thoughtful, playful verse, allows us to imagine what happens when earth meets sky.

              Poems and photographs take readers up close to observe the daily life of the extraordinary Great Egret. A Great Egret rarely rests. This majestic bird, with its big feet, even bigger beak, and breathtaking lacy wings, is a treat to watch. With his camera, photographer Jason Stemp...le takes us close to these magnificent creatures to witness their physical--and quirky--beauty as well as their daily habits and behavior--soaring, hunting, preening, nesting--which most of us never get a chance to see. Meanwhile, celebrated poet Jane Yolen offers her keen observations in carefully-crafted poetry that is at once whimsical, thoughtful, and thought provoking. Interesting facts about the bird accompany each poem in this National Outdoor Book Awards Honor Book.
