Robert Michael Pyle, author of 'The Thunder Tree,' wrote of this work, saying, ". . .a ditch somewhere--or a creek, meadow, woodlot, or marsh. . .These places of initiation, where the borders between ourselves and other creatures break down, where the earth gets under our nails and a sense of place gets under our skin. . .Everybody has a ditch, or ought to. For only the ditches and the fields, the woods, the ravines--can teach us to care enough for all the land."
