Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Artist and naturalist Hinchman, who has kept a journal since 1970, shares in this work her ideas about keeping a daily record of one's observations and experiences. Her advice, directed to "would-be naturalist/journal-keepers," focuses on the tangible details of the natural world, "moments of the ordinary-made-extraordinary by the simple act of choosing and isolating them." She emphasizes the value of adding drawings to a journal and includes many samples of her annotated sketches of plants, animals, and landscapes. Excerpts from her own writings are basically accounts of the minutiae of her surroundings in Wyoming's Northern Rockies. Although her excerpts lack real insight, her recommendations for observing the natural world more intensely are valuable. A potentially helpful purchase.‘Ilse Heidmann, San Marcos, Tex.
