Scott Turner has brought to these pages his keen and nuanced sensitivity to the natural world that surrounds us. Turner's engaging prose reminds us how important it is to pay very close attention to nature and appreciate the lessons it can teach us -- over and over again -- about how to live meaningfully. Frederic Reamer, Host, This I Believe: New England, The Public's Radio and Professor, Rhode Island College

Scott Turner's essays display an extraordinarily wide range of knowledge and curiosity about the natural world -- the plants, wild animals (a few of them human), landscapes, weather and the seasons in the countryside, in cities and small towns, on the coasts and in the mountains and, sometimes with mordant humor, humans' reactions to them. We enjoy his take on the tough trees growing in gritty parts of New York City as well as his pleasure hiking in such bucolic settings as the Green Mountains. His observational intensity and precision energize us to appreciate the wonders all around us. Robert Whitcomb, President of The Boston Guardian, GoLocal24.com columnist, former editorial page editor of The Providence Journal and former senior editor at the International Herald Tribune
