KIRKUS REVIEW

From a Northeastern countryman, a witnessing of the seasons as they turn, from spring to summer, fall, winter and then -- again to spring. Daily entries offer little essays on natural things --creatures in flight, trees and flowers growing, or contracting to a winter world, the stars and the moon in all seasons... More earnest than penetrating come the thoughts and questions raised by the wonders of nature -- on the why of things and man's place in the universe. Still, there is some pleasure in meeting the flicker, the marsh marigold, of standing ""knee-deep in June"" or under a hunter's moon.
