Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Slow down and sink into these beautiful meditations on the natural world around us. Margaret Renkl's syrupy Southern voice and measured rhythm are perfect for her essays and praise songs on everything from foxes to tadpoles to walking in the rainy woods. As Renkl unfolds a year exploring the environment around her Nashville home week by week, season by season, she demonstrates the value of looking closely. Her macro-lens view reveals both connections and wildness, always grounded in the familiar and relatable. Even as she acknowledges the devastations wrought by climate change and pesticides, the warmth and wonder in Renkl's voice offer hope. This audiobook is a welcome balm.
