In this classic of literary nonfiction, Annie Dillard takes us through a year of on-foot explorations through her own landscape, bringing anecdotes, curiosities, and insights about all she observes and experiences. In the summer, she stalks muskrats in the creek and thinks about wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot, unties a snakeskin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers.

Throughout her wanderings, Annie Dillard's keen observations, poetic sensibilities, introspective reflections, and reverence for her surroundings show us the world outside as we have never seen it before. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this at a slow pace, sitting with Annie Dillard's words as she sat with the insects, plants, and muskrats of Tinker Creek. Informative anecdotes flow seamlessly into meditations on spirituality, in a way that's never dull and almost always illuminating. I haven't done this in ages, but I took out a pen to mark certain passages, because there were so many beautiful phrases I wanted to remember. "

    " Five stars for Annie Dillard keeping me riveted through what is essentially eight hours of a woman staring at a pond. "
