Papa Goose: One Year, Seven Goslings, and the Flight of My Life

The charming true story of one man’s journey to raise seven goslings in the name of science.
In Papa Goose, Michael Quetting shares the hilarious and moving true story of how he became a father to seven rambunctious goslings―and the surprising things he learned along the way. Starting right at the beginning, with the eggs, his journey takes him from the incubator all the way to the airstrip, where he must attempt to teach the geese to fly as part of an ambitious scientific research initiative for the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology, which tracks animal migrations around the world. For the next eleven months, we follow the newly minted dad as he takes the goslings on daily swims in the lake, tracks them down when they go astray, and watches their personalities develop: feisty, churlish, and lovable. Packed with charm and humor, Papa Goose quickly draws us into the adventure as Gloria, Nemo, and the rest of the crew conquer land, water, and air.>

Just bought the eBook Think Like a Commoner (2014) by David Bollier on #NewSocietyPublishers, a B Corporation that sells DRM-free eBooks.

If you want to read it, I'm happy to send it to you (it's released under a #CreativeCommons licence after all), but don't hesitate to support a publisher that offers DRM-free books and does something for the environment, if you have the means to do so: https://www.newsociety.com/Books/T/Think-Like-a-Commoner

#Hive is a UK-based wholesaler-owned bookshop with home delivery or collection from local indie bookshops (who get a cut of the sale):

https://www.hive.co.uk

You can also adopt a local bookshop, who get a cut of your orders regardless of delivery method.

Pro Tip: If you want to be *really* supportive of your local bookshop, phone/email them to order through them directly. Price and delivery time is the same, but they get a bigger share of the price.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #astronomy, #books, #nature, #photography, #tech, and #travel. Nerdy, introverted, mostly harmless. I have been called more exciting than folding laundry <- and that was from a good friend.
