This work is the winner of a 2006 Wisconsin Library Association Outstanding Achievement Book Award. Excerpts have appeared in Nature Conservancy and Natural History. After the deaths of her father and father-in-law, Laurie Lawlor discovers an unlikely place for healing and transformation in a wetland in south-eastern Wisconsin - a landscape of abundant and sometimes inaccessible beauty that has often been ignored, misunderstood, and threatened by human destruction. In her personal wetland journey, she examines the sky, delves underwater, and peers between sedges in all seasons and all times of day. An engaging and deeply intimate record, ""This Tender Place"" is, at its heart, a story of refuge and renewal refracted through the lens of life within wetlands - among the most productive, yet most endangered, ecosystems in the world.
