Item Details

An exhilarating meditation on nature and its seasons-a personal narrative highlighting one year's exploration on foot in the author's own neighborhood in Tinker Creek, Virginia. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays -King of the Meadow' with a field of grasshoppers.

When I first began to read this book, it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. So I put it down, thinking "too rich, too dense." A few months later, I picked the book up again, began to read it casually, and then couldn't stop. Images and passages from this book continue to inform my life twenty years later. It's been a gift.

So a few weeks ago, I picked it up again, thinking to renew the experience. But it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. I'm waiting now....
