Master taleteller, deft and graceful scientist, passionate poet, Raymo is a storycatcher and storysinger of rare humor, hawkness of eye, breadth of biology and physics acumen, and lyricism of line. Trust me when I say that swimming in his stories is elevating, edifying, and exuberant-making. -- Brian Doyle, author of Spirited Men and Epiphanies & Elegies
Lovely essays brimming with mysticism. * Kirkus *
A reverie, an entrancing meditation, on stones and stars and mossy ruins . . . Raymo has somehow found a way to invoke magic, without requiring me to believe in it. * San Francisco Chronicle *
A beautiful series of essays that examine science, religion, and the landscape of Kerry. . . . A travel book about the world of ideas. * Irish Echo *
Chet Raymo is simply the best literary naturalist writing today, producing elegantly written, insightful books that open from a seemingly modest premise into a dizzying (and sometimes humbling) view of our place in the universe. . . . He is our apostle of the joy of curiosity. * Bookpage *
