Ellen Burt’s writing is magic. It slides and dances into and around a woman’s life lived with an intense engagement with the non-human world. Here is language that is lyrical, powerful and engaging. This book reflects the wisdom of someone who has looked with a clear and intense gaze at life and has written perceptive tales of bears, boats, owls, natural disasters, ancient cedars and more. There is deep understanding, some of it hard won, in these stories.” -Luanne Armstrong
