"Charming and most enjoyable." -The New York Times "Marvelously entertaining. . . . [Klinkenborg] affirm[s] nature, simply by giving it a voice. In the din of our times, that may be one voice worth listening to." -The Boston Globe "Klinkenborg is neither naturalist nor nature poet, but he writes about nature with the science of the former and the soul of the latter." -Los Angeles Times "Magical. . . . Timothy comes down off the shelf of the Natural History Museum and comes alive, delivering . . . the most satisfying meditation on life and the natural world since Marilynne Robinson's Gilead." -Chicago Tribune
