dc.description.abstract Migrations explores the coming of age of a twenty-something woman by refracting her experiences through the lens of nature. Exploring how a close-knit family grows and shifts, this collection of personal essays helps the narrator understand her place in the world. By examining astronomical phenomena, storms and meteorology, the science of pain and empathy, migration patterns, folklore interpretations of animal behavior, among other natural concepts, the narrator makes sense of her emotional truths, charting her growth as she navigates her twenties and her family's changing landscape. This is a collection about family, about storytelling, and about the way the world around us mimics the cycles and patterns of human experience.
