Reviews

"Pyle looks past the stumps and clear cuts to rediscover the essence of the Willapa Hills. Even though scarred from decades of logging this terrain is still a wilderness. The author puts the pieces together to create an example of nature trying to survive."-Krist Novoselic, former bassist of Nirvana "Pyle shows himself here to be a cunning essayist who is able to bring to life a region little known ... a love song to an overlooked--and overworked--land." Kirkus 1/5/87 "Pyle has created a collection of vividly responsive observations and speculations about the diversity and requirements of life, from butterflies to bears" Library Journal 2/1/87 Not just a classic of Northwest nature writing and literature, Wintergreen is a book that transcends the wounded Willapa Hills where it is set and becomes a meditation on the relationship of all people to all places. --William Dietrich
