Dipper of Copper Creek is a short, sweet and simple book about a summer in the life of a pair of water ouzels (dippers) living in the mountain streams of the Rockies. Its aimed at older children; the birds have names but they don't speak or think anything outside of the realm of realistic bird thoughts (mainly food and safety.) It has the tone of a nature documentary, in fact, it reminded me of the Audobon Society films I used to be taken to see as a child. Paralleled to the world of the birds and other animals on the mountain is the story of a boy coming to spend the summer with his prospector grandfather. If you like old-fashioned nature stories and are familar with George's other works, this is highly recommended.
