In this collection of meditations on the natural world, quiet musings on the nature of nature and life itself, Hogan looks at the circularity of life and death, how the elements eternally transform each other, the aliveness of a feather, the magic of mating bats, the murmuring heartbeat of caves, the sounds of growing corn plants, the implications of teaching sign language to chimpanzees, flowers blooming in Hiroshima. Sherman Alexie says of these 16 piercingly beautiful essays, “Linda Hogan has written a gutsy and tender book. She teaches us about the beauty of our world, but makes no guarantees. This is a book of stories filled with intimate and gentle revelations that can tear your head off. I mean it.”
