5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Inspiration, May 18, 2011
For every one of us who has ever conducted field research or just walked into the forest, through the desert, or along the beach, this book is a delight and a treasure. A combination of instruction and inspiration, it makes the practice of keeping field notes feel like one of the most worthwhile arts, a manner of interacting as fully as possible with what we discover and documenting it for ourselves and others to profit from our experience. While there are many suggestions, ideas and approaches in the different chapters, the overall effect for me was that of being given permission to experiment with field notes, to hybridize different techniques, to adopt whatever method might best serve my own style of being in direct contact with the natural world. Even if I never intended to put into practice the methods that are described, I would find the examples of work by others utterly fascinating, an intriguing glimpse into the process of being the keenest observer of our surroundings. I hope this book will reach the hands of many explorers of all ages who will take it upon themselves to leave for future generations stacks of beautiful and insightful field notebooks that can illuminate more dimensions of the intricate world around us.
