Field Notes and Other Stories
“Grounded in place and memory, the essays in
Field Notes are essentially love letters to the earth.  
They show us the importance of knowing the place
where we live and being attentive to nature’s lessons. 
This is a splendid book—beautifully written, and heartfelt.”   
Shari Wagner, author of The Harmonist at Nightfall: Poems of Indiana
