Helen Macdonald's 6 favorite books

Helen Macdonald is the author of the acclaimed international best-seller, H Is for Hawk. One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Arctic Dreams by Barry Lopez

A wondrous investigation into the Arctic and its place in our imagination, as well as an exploration of landscape, culture, science, hunting, morality, and value. There is a moment in this book when Lopez feels compelled to bow to arctic ground-nesting birds with deep humility and reverence for their tenacity. It always reduces me to tears.
Read about another entry on the list.

Arctic Dreams is among Caspar Henderson's top ten natural histories.
