The Best Study of Evolution I've Read.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Klamath Knot (Paperback)
Wallace takes on evolution (and the way we were taught about it) the way Annie Dillard lifted the veil over nature in "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek": you are forced to replace the myths with a newer, even more mysterious understanding. Ironically, the theory of Sasquatch is retold as common-sensical, scientific fact. The steelhead trout, in fact, comes across as the greater nystery!
I count this book among my all-time favorites, a sort of heir apparent to "Walden."
