    Personal favorite of mine. Was lucky to have a friend recommend it. Follows close in the spirit of a 19th century transcendentalist as well as evoking a human voice heard against the sounds of our natural world. Scientific as well as spiritual, this book is a true worth in a world over stuffed with words.
