Robin-Robin: A Journal is a true story about an orphaned baby robin. “Wobbly, bald — almost featherless — with a physique only a mother could love, the seven-day-old bird unexpectedly fell into my husband’s and my life and changed us forever. Robin-Robin soon became an insatiable gourmand, unwitting educator, and loving companion. She slept in the palm of our hands and went for garden walks perched on our shoulders; but she was also a testy little entertainer who ran us like a master drill sergeant in our own home.”
A painter, etcher, designer, architect, nature lover, and author of five books, Balcomb lived on a hillside overlooking Puget Sound. She was a graduate of the American Academy of Art, Chicago, and had a BFA cum laude from the University of New Mexico and an MFA from the University of Washington. She was a member of the USA Authors Guild.
Richly illustrated with Balcomb’s sketches, etchings, and family photographs.
