The poetry is accompanied by charming illustrations and a clean presentation. He describes the beauty of Ice Mountain, and I was struck by how well the words came together on each page to describe the harmony of life in the wilderness. I enjoyed following his journey.
Challenges that the wind turbines bring to the mountain are brought to light in an approachable way. He highlights the destructive qualities of the turbines and their presence without coming across as an off-putting rant. The author has a deft touch.
His poetry is hauntingly beautiful and cathartic. I wanted to savor every page. Though the book could easily be read in one sitting, it was rewarding to linger and find all the smaller scenes he describes. The long walks and snowy days are a beautiful backdrop for his observations.
Living in suburbia close to a big city leads me to treasure books that tell of the isolated countryside. In cities, we rarely get to experience the subtle ways in which seasons change.
Reading this every winter on a snowy day will be a new pleasure of mine.
