by Annie Dillard

Reviewer Rating:


Nature eats itself alive, explodes into dazzling landscapes, and Annie Dillard watches with a ferocious curiosity and reports back in beautiful prose. Can you tell I loved this book? A Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is an observation, a meditation, and an exhilarating celebration about Dillard’s time living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and of her extensive studies into theology, science, and folklore. It is violent, it is serene, it is frustrating and fascinating, and I highly recommend it.
