Although I did not find each essay as beautiful and enticing as the next, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Oliver’s descriptions of nature and the calm, inspiration and bewilderment she receives from her relationship with nature are so vivid and profound. Definitely want to pick up her poetry now.

Just honestly beautiful in a way that you don't get very often. I mean honestly in the truer sense of the book feeling 'true' no matter how many critiques of possible fact can always be put down in front of good poems. It speaks to a more beautiful and natural world.
