9780061233326: Pilgrim at Tinker Creek (Harper Perrennial Modern Classics)

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is a book that has continued to change people s lives for over thirty years. A passionate and poetic reflection on the mystery of creation with its beauty on the one hand and cruelty on the other, it has become a modern American literary classic in the tradition of Thoreau. Living in solitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia, and observing the changing seasons, the flora and fauna, she reflects on the nature of creation and of the God who set it in motion. Whether the images are cruel or lovely, the language is memorably beautiful and poetic, and insistently celebratory. Just pay attention, Dillard urges throughout, and you will find yourself sailing headlong and breathless under the gale force of the spirit .

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. 208 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is the story of a dramatic year in Virginia s Roanoke Valley. Annie Dillard sets out to see what she can see. What she sees are astonishing incidents of beauty tangled in a rapture with violence. Her personal narrative highlights one year s exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780061233326
