"The poems, selected by Jo Miles Schuman and Joanna Bailey Hodgman, offer a sense of the poet’s close connection to her avian friends. The satiny pages are a fine complement to the beauty of Dickinson’s imagery and the precise renderings of the artists."—Jan Gardner, Boston Globe
“Imagine a stormy day and a cozy fire in a country home with time for a cup of tea or coffee and some quiet, thoughtful moments watching the birds at your feeder. This book brings that feeling into your hands.”—Maine Antique Digest
“A Spicing of Birds is a beautifully and sensitively done volume, that offers us a living, breathing slice of the author, and a good start to a reading of the birds in Dickinson’s words.”—Jonathan Skinner, The Emily Dickinson Journal, Volume II, No. 11
