Because the book I am featuring today is about a creek I decided I should take a photo of our local creek. This is Carwell Creek near our bush block at Clandulla.
A book I have read recently
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard won the 1975 Pulitzer Prize for general non-ficton. "The book records the narrator's thoughts on solitude, writing, and religion, as well as scientific observations on the flora and fauna she encounters. Touching upon themes of faith, nature, and awareness." That subject matter appeals to me.
However, I have tried to read this book several times. I was determined to finish it (and did) but it still hasn't won me over ... there are parts that are wonderfully poetic but to me on the whole it is too overwrought and has too much detail.
