"I'm glad I waited until I was ready to read this book, and I'd reached a point in my life where I had the perspective to really appreciate Bechdel's memoir. Nine years ago I might have fixated on the tragedy and missed the quieter advice that it is damaging to force yourself to live within the confines of expectations, even your own."

"The story of MacDonald's training of Mabel is compelling; the author becomes almost feral herself in her attempt to drown her grief in the hawk's wildness. MacDonald's writing is dazzling: unbelievable really, the freshest, most original I've encountered in ages."

Doing a short visit looking for research material on a difficult subject with less than two hours before closing on a weekend, we found the reference librarian exceptionally helpful! We walked away with two very good copies of a obituary from microfilm largely due to his assistance with the very complicated micro film reader/printer. We will be back! The Library itself is a very handsome building and if all the staff function like this gentleman it is a well oiled machine!
