A passionate and poetic reflection on the mystery of creation with its beauty on the one hand and cruelty on the other, it has become a modern American literary classic in the tradition of Thoreau. Living in solitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia, and observing the changing seasons, the flora and fauna, the author reflects on the nature of creation and of the God who set it in motion. Whether the images are cruel or lovely, the language is memorably beautiful and poetic, and insistently celebratory. Just pay attention, Dillard urges throughout, and you will find yourself 'sailing headlong and breathless under the gale force of the spirit'.Hide synopsis

I am enjoying this book so much that I had to buy 3 more copies to give away. No way am I giving away MY copy. I'm even taking notes(!) and have to read excerpts out loud to anyone who will listen.
This is a book of wonder. It is a poetic, lyrical wandering into nature. The author takes your hand and shows you all the marvels and unseen things that happen practically under your nose. Every minute detail and occurrence that you would never see on your own is brought to light. She follows the ...
My favorite book, full of rich details about nature--and about being human. We are all pilgrims at Tinker Creek (or Shoals Creek, or Cypress Creek, or Woman Hollering Creek) and how much we enjoy the pilgrimage depends on how willing we are to observe and meditate. Dillard's keen eye for detail, and ...
