Birding with Cancer is an exquisitely written memoir of a remarkable cancer survivor, Karin Marcus. It is deeply moving and touching, while providing inspiration and hope for anyone challenged by a life-threatening illness. Sharing her personal experience, Karin Marcus blends her passionate love of nature and birding with the spiritual wisdom she garnered while studying with a Sufi master and with her work as a Life-Coach who views life and her healing journey as seasons of the year. I highly recommend this book. It is a gift for all of us!

Among the many books I have read about the Cancer experience, Birding Through Cancer is completely unique. Karin Marcus walks a path through the challenges of life-threatening illness with the sensitive eye of an expert bird watcher and the wise perspective of a seasoned Life Coach. She has filled her book with wonderful quotes and exquisite pictures of the creatures of the sky. The outcome is a one of a kind book which is a passionate celebration of the love of life that is the foundation of all healing. It will inspire you.
