Deserves More Recognition!

A wonderful collection of short essays on some of my favorite topics: trees, rural life, rivers, suburban sprawl, consumerism, growing up in "wild" places, and becoming middle-aged. The illustrations by Ladislav Hanka complement the book perfectly.

Springer not only has some great insights into modern life, but writes really well - I think I'm going to buy a copy of this (which I had checked out of the Ann Arbor District Library) just so I can re-read it again someday and appreciate the thoughtful metaphors and lucid style.

I think this deserves much greater recognition that it presently has!
