The Tangled Bank: Writings from Orion, with perennial Eagle Harbor Books favorite Robert Michael Pyle. This is a selection of essays he wrote for Orion and Orion Afield magazines over eleven years. They are thoughtful and concise narratives that range in subject from hops and those who love them to independent bookstores (yay!) to the monarch butterflies of Mexico. "These essays ... convey an exuberant sense of what it feels like to encounter the greater-than-human world with senses alert and mind engaged. And what a mind! Equally at ease in science and art, in philosophy and fun, Pyle is curious and knowledgeable about all manner of living things ... You will not find a livelier companion." ~ Scott Russell Sanders, author of A Conservationist Manifesto
