Book SynopsisWhether it's a bird hopping along the sidewalk, water droplets glistening on a tree, or the color of the sky outside your kitchen window, Clare Walker Leslie encourages us to notice and appreciate the splendors of nature. Drawn to Nature comprises excerpts from 25 years of Leslie's journals devoted to observing and recording the natural world in words, field sketches, and impressionistic watercolors. Delightfully amusing and deeply passionate by turns, this compilation will inspire you to connect with nature, wherever you live.
"Drawn to Nature from Storey Publishing ($14) features a selection of author Clare Walker Leslie's journal pages that encourages its readers to slow down and look around. The beauty of nature, she says, is in the small details of watching birds before a storm or a squirrel before winter. And it can happen just outside your door in the backyard." - The Tennessean (Nashville, TN)
"It can be inspiring to look at...Drawn to Nature by Clare Walker Leslie. After a few months of keeping track of nature, you will be able to look back on your own journals and notice not only how the natural world changes around you, but also how you have changed over time. Now that's worth taking note." - Island Ad-Vantages (Stonington, ME)
