A lovingly illustrated collection of poems for all ages highlighting the timeless beauty of nature, from one of America’s leading literary lights.
Illustrator Tom Pohrt spent years gathering poems by prize-winning writer Wendell Berry that he thought children as well as adults could appreciate, creating art to accompany his thoughtful selection. The result is Terrapin—a volume of twenty-one poems with dozens of sketches, drawings, and watercolors.
Young or old, lovers of the natural world will delight in this beautiful volume built around the work of “a sophisticated, philosophical poet in the line descending from Emerson and Thoreau” (The Baltimore Sun).
“[Berry’s poems] shine with the gentle wisdom of a craftsman who has thought deeply about the paradoxical strangeness and wonder of life.” —The Christian Science Monitor
