Anita Nygaard's lovewrought vision of the seasons contains all the delights and surprises of a first-time adventure in virgin woods. Her poetic prose accommodates a wealth of practical information: recipes for elderberry wine, quotations from eminent naturalists; advice on ski touring, excavating a snow shelter, and foods to eat on the trail; information on animals and plants - these are all unexpected treasures to be found in these pages. There are profiles of people: john Muir, the great naturalist; Henry David Thoreau; Elinor Wylie; and others who have celebrated the sensual feasts of the earth's offerings.
