About the Author
David Oates is the author of two books of poetry and four works of nonfiction, including Paradise Wild: Reimagining American Nature and City Limits: Walking Portland's Boundary. His award-winning essays have appeared in Georgia Review, Creative Nonfiction, and Orion. He was Kittredge Distinguished Visiting Writer at the University of Montana and is founder and general editor of Kelson Books in Portland, Oregon.
"I love this book. It's beautifully written, with lushness and yet craft. Oates can really write. He's a poet. His style is mature and quite, quite fine. When Oates promotes the idea that we should 'be present to mystery, ' we should 'allow it, ' I say yes."
--Chris Anderson, author of Light When It Comes: Trusting Joy, Facing Darkness, and Seeing God in Everything and The Next Thing Always Belongs

"Clearly and beautifully written, lyrical, poetic, and imaginative in style . . . I was drawn into how intensely particular and honest Oates was about his spiritual journey growing up and into adulthood. His range of knowledge about the natural world, art, music, literature, political history, philosophy, and religion makes the book unique in its reach."
--Gretel Van Wieren, author of Listening at Lookout Creek: Nature in Spiritual Practice
