A magical book, thoughtful and thought-provoking. ( )

Achingly beautiful. Moore is a profoundly gifted philosopher and the clear, deep, abiding love embodied in her writing leaves me humbled. ( )

Moore is a philosopher at the University of Oregon, but clearly she spends a lot of time outdoors. This short book of essays is about her relationship to both nature and to the people she loves. We all are hanging on, like the holdfast, to that which we hold most dear. This lovely book was the perfect book for a long flight away from my family and an antidote to a rough week in which a friend of my son's and a student at the school where my wife teaches died and we had to put one of our dogs down. Sometimes we just need to hang on to one another. This beautifully written book reminds me of that life lesson. ( )
