Sometimes I skip over reporting on non-documentary Ivorybill-related movies, novels, stories, and the like here… enough folks already regard the content of this blog as fiction ;-) without me bringing up deliberate outputs of fiction. But the reviews I've seen for a recent novel set in the Big Woods of Arkansas, entitled "The Lord God Bird" by Tom Gallant, are too good and positive, not to pass this one along (haven't read it myself, but haven't seen a single bad review).

From the publisher:
"Infused with captivating imagery and spare, assertive prose, The Lord God Bird explores the vibrant spirit of a wild creature in a way no nonfiction work ever could. This is a profound, yet hopeful, meditation on the way humans relate to the natural world."
