Praise for Owls and Other Fantasies:
"Mary Oliver is beautiful and accurate in this book of poetry and prose about birds...all rendered with the precision of a line-drawing of a single feather that puts the entire wing into perspective."
Praise for Mary Oliver's poetry:
"These are life enhancing and redemptive poems that coax the sublime from the subliminal."
--Sally Connolly, Poetry

--May Swenson
"The gift of Oliver's poetry is that she communicates the beauty she finds in the world and makes it unforgettable"
--Miami Herald
