Read full description of the books:
Several essays really stood out which is what I'm looking for in reading a book like this(something relatable to my experiences). The essay "the song of the canyon wren" described something I've known my entire life, even as a child, but have never shared nor even knew how to put it into words! Moore says it perfectly for me... Finding the (Real Church) in "Incoming Tide" is momentous and something I've known for quite awhile and am always trying to share with others through my art and conversation. Then too, a couple of hilarious essays about a run-in with a moose and my favorite "The man with a stump where his head should be"!

Read information about the authorEnvironmental philosopher Kathleen Dean Moore writes about moral, spiritual, and cultural relationships to the natural world. In 2000 she founded the Spring Creek Project at Oregon State, which brings together the practical wisdom of the environmental sciences, the clarity of philosophy, and the emotive power of the written word to re-imagine humankind’s relation to the natural world. In addition to her philosophical writing for professional journals, Moore is the author of several books of nature essays, including Wild Comfort: The Solace of Nature; Riverwalking; and The Pine Island Paradox, winner of the Oregon Book Award.
A graduate of Wooster College (1969), Moore earned her M.A. (1972) and Ph.D. (1977) from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in the philosophy of law, with a focus on the nature of forgiveness and reconciliation. At Oregon State, she teaches environmental ethics, the philosophy of nature, and a variety of courses for OSU’s new master’s program in environmental leadership. She is also co-author of a new Environmental Humanities Initiative, which integrates science and humanities to provide leadership for complex times.
