"A collection of meditations like polished stones--painstakingly worded, tough-minded yet partial to mystery, and peerless when it comes to injecting larger resonances into the natural world."-- "Kirkus Reviews" "A collection of meditations like polished stones--painstakingly worded, tough-minded, yet partial to mystery, and peerless when it comes to injecting larger resonances into the natural world."

Review:

"A collection of meditations like polished stones--painstakingly worded, tough-minded, yet partial to mystery, and peerless when it comes to injecting larger resonances into the natural world.""--Kirkus Reviews"""Teaching a Stone to Talk" is superb. As with the flying fish, Annie Dillard doesn't do it often, but when she does she silver-streaks out of the blue and archingly transcends all other writers of our day in all the simple, intimate, and beautiful ways of the natural master." -- R. Buckminster Fuller"The natural world is ignited by her prose and we see the world as an incandescent metaphor of the spirit...Few writers evoke better than she the emotion of awe, and few have ever conveyed more graphically the weight of silence, the force of the immaterial."-- Robert Taylor, "Boston Globe""This little book is haloed and informed throughout by Dillard's distinctive passion and intensity, a sort of intellectual radiance that reminds me both Thoreau and Emily Dickinson."-- Edward Abbey, "Chicago Sun-Times"

Book Description:

A dazzling celebration of the natural world and our place in it from the Pulitzer Prize-winning nature writer.
