1 Zwinger, Ann Haymond Shaped by Wind and Water: Reflections of a Naturalist
1571312404 / 9781571312402; Known for beautifully observed and illustrated books about the rivers, deserts and mountains of the West, Ann Haymond Zwinger here focuses on the guiding principle of her life as a naturalist. Even as she writes, she "looks" with a notebook and pencil, believing that "to know the world intimately is the beginning of caring. " The author moves from details to the larger patterns that link them to the entire world, finding in the filaments of mushrooms access to the essential connectedness of life. As artist, writer, and naturalist, she feels that her responsibility is to create a link between scientific natural history and the reader who can learn to love the land. 160 pages, including works cited. Remainder marks on top of pages - two short black lines. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
