Book Beginnings: Wild Delicate Seconds

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.  Please remember to include the title of the book and the author.

I am posting early this week -- just because.

Leave a link to your post.  If you don't have a blog, but want to participate, please leave a comment with your Book Beginning.


What follows are twenty-nine nonfiction micro-essays, each one a description of a chance encounter I had with a member (or members) of the fraternity of wildlife that call the pacific Northwest home.  
 -- from the author's Preface to Wild Delicate Seconds: 29 Wildlife Encounters by Charles Finn, published by OSU Press.

"Micro-essays" is a great term and a great format for presenting the flitting, ephemeral encounters Finn writes about in this charming book.
