Song of Spring by Linda Beers
When I watched the Discovery Channel documentary, Racing Extinction, I was deeply moved by the site of shark fins as far as the eye can see and the haunting image of a shark that had just been finned tragically struggling to survive. I wrote “Song of Spring” with a noticeable Asian influence. The United States went through a time of severe exploitation of our natural resources and animal kingdom. We are learning and working towards a kinder and more sustainable relationship with the world around us. Unfortunately, the world does not have time for countries with newly emerging economies to learn this lesson.
