From Our Editors

Annie Dillard’s work reflects the hand of a meticulous wordsmith. Her body of work includes the seminal Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and American Childhood. In this essay collection, Teaching A Stone to Talk, Dillard writes about connecting with nature in spare and lyrical prose. This author proves simplicity is the best form of sophistication.

Editorial Reviews

"A collection of meditations like polished stones--painstakingly worded, tough-minded, yet partial to mystery, and peerless when it comes to injecting larger resonances into the natural world." (Kirkus Reviews)
