“Voices like Susan Hand Shetterly’s are soothing . . . Shetterly puts a hand on your forearm and says, come walk along the Maine coast. Let’s consider other species, eels and hummingbirds.” — Los Angeles Times

(Dallas Morning News)

“Shetterly shares her journey of hope, loss and discovery. Along the way, she is transformed by the calls of birds and the ‘delicate pins-and-needles sounds’ of ice crystals, by the aroma of rich soil, by the challenges and gifts of an unforgiving nature.” —Dallas Morning News

(Boston Globe)

“Shetterly provides a unique window into a world of wonder.” –Boston Globe

(Columbus Dispatch)

This is a delightful book about living in the woods, enjoying what’s outside your window and finding pleasure in taking the time to notice the little things right in front of us.” —Columbus Dispatch
