Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An exhilarating meditation on nature and its seasons — a personal narrative highlighting one year's exploration on foot in the author's own neighborhood in Tinker Creek, Virginia. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays 'King of the Meadow' with a field of grasshoppers.

Synopsis:

Join "one of the most distinctive voices in American literature today" ("Boston Globe") on her Pulitzer Prize-winning journey of the mind.

I think that the title of this book really ties everything that the writer has expressed all come together. If you think about it, a pilgrim is somebody that goes on a journey and the main character is always on a journey to find new things.
