This is one book that I'm going to keep, not send back out again. Annie Dillard's descriptions of her experiences with nature make the reader think in a larger frame of mind. She brings in many asides that make the reader travel with her as she ponders the absolute immensity and minuteness of the world. I think I will have to reread this book many times to understand and to digest the treasures it holds.
