Susan Brind Morrow has the talent to wrap amazingly realistic portraits of natural beauty around amazingly moving portraits of people's spirit and character. This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read....
eccentric personalities -- one a trapper, the other a beekeeper -- and their very different attitudes toward the world. While illuminating her own poignant relationships with these men who deeply influenced her, Susan Brind Morrow offers a meditation on the land itself -- specifically, the rich and storied Finger Lakes region of New York. Keenly attuned to unexpected scientific, historical, and metaphorical connections, Morrow's writing provides a strikingly original perspective on the fine but resilient threads that bind us all to the natural world. "Beautifully crafted prose . . . trac[es] the rich histories of two men -- one a beekeeper, the other a trapper . . . One of those rare nature books that mixes a perfect combination of personal insight and historical depth." -- USA Today "A riveting compendium of observations from a very curious, very interesting mind . . . Morrow manages paragraphs as poets manage line breaks." -- Boston Globe "A meditation on the outdoors that evokes 'the smell of damp earth, the sweetness of maples and pines . . . as though it were freedom itself.'" -- The New Yorker "So venerably beautiful it makes your teeth ache." -- Kirkus Reviews Susan Brind Morrow is the author of The Names of Things.
