About this book

Knopp's first collection of nature essays offer 16 pieces filled with the evidence not only of books but also of the eyes, ears, nose and taste buds to give a multidimensional view of nature. `These are essays in the best and truest sense, assays, distillations, at once learned and personal. Lisa Knopp vividly demonstrates how encounters with the mundane details of nature - a mole's nose, the shell of a turtle, the tail of an opossum - can yield a richer and deeper life. She teaches us, by her own patient and enquiring example, how to see. This is the freshest and brightest collection of natural history essays I have read in many years' - Paul Guchow.
