See What People Are Saying!

  • “This is a book of astonishment, reverence, and freedom. Familiar and less familiar beings and places are alike made bright here, burnished by a seeing made vision, a seeing made also more precise by being shared. These pages enact an invitation that leads inward and also outward. I looked, I read, I lingered . . . then reached for my hiking boots, to go out at once and see more deeply and freely for myself.”

    Jane Hirshfield
    prize-winning poet and essayist, finalist National Book Critics Circle Award

  • “Only someone with Don Moseman’s patience to walk across continents could hold a camera for hours on a bobcat that itself is holding its position for hours during a hunt. The resulting images of animals behaving as if nobody were watching are deeply affecting and show wildness in its truest sense. For many, the images and accompanying text by Mary Reynolds Thompson will impel both celebration and protection in equal measure.”
