A delightful book and great for all ages. Those under fifty will see a different perspective of aging and those over fifty will find great advice and pit-falls to avoid. Magnusson offers serious but practical advise on aging and everything is delivered in a lighthearted manner, including some laugh out loud humor. A truly a wonderful read.

Part memoir, part backyard natural history Late Migrations packs a wallop in a tiny package. Renkl treats the lives and deaths she sees in her backyard with the same deference and respect as that of her family. A beautiful study on grief and loss and the importance of living a full life.
