In the strikingly original tradition of Watership Down and Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Linda Cline presents in THE MIRACLE SEASON a warm and estraordinary allegorical story of the conscious awakening of the Animal Kingdom to the dire threat to survival as man imposes the mounting tragedy of industrial civilization on the world's natural environment. A feisty young crow with an overwhelming curiosity for life and a genius intelligence seeks out and communicates with his fellow wild creatures. Crow calls the thinkers together for a group entrancement session to solve the perplexing problem of the increasing death rate among birds and animals. Man is poisoning the natural environment and survival may become the exception instead of the rule. Crow preaches throughout the animal kingdom, travels the world for 7 years spreading the word. At first he is ridiculed, humiliated and ignored. Not until he changes from a radical preacher of doom to a storyteller, a singer, a poet, is his message finally heeded.
A delightful, whimsical story for the animal oriented person.
