Synopsis

Here Is the Wetland by Madeleine Dunphy

...Here is the waterboth shallow and stillthat soaks the soilof this murky, moist world: Here is the wetland. It is known as the wetland. Atop its glittering surface and below in its shadowy depths, birds, bass, minks, and muskrats struggle to survive and flourish. Madeleine Dunphy's lyrical prose provides a clear understanding of how each living creature links to the other in a vital chain of life. Artist Wayne McLoughlin adds a stunning visual perspective with luminously detailed paintings that convey the fragile beauty and complexity of this fascinating and critically important ecological community.
