Faith of cranes : finding hope and family in Alaska / by Hank Lentfer.
Seattle, WA : Mountaineers Books, 2011.
179 p. : ill. ; 19 cm.
"Faith of Cranes is Lentfer's quiet, lyrical memoir of his home near Glacier Bay, where he reveals a family's simple acts--planting potatoes, gathering berries, hunting deer--and a close and eccentric Alaskan community. He shows us how several thousand birds, and one little girl, teach a new father there is no future imaginable that does not leave room for compassion and grace."--P.  of cover.
