"In a world increasingly cynical and numb, Powning puts a light in the window for us all, wherever we call home." — The Chicago Tribune
"Beth's sense of home is not of a static dwelling, but of a place of seasons, cycles, and lifespans, or experiences and memories. This is a book for your soul."
"Beth Powning's beautiful celebration of natural life is meet and proper for these unnatural times. I think it will be read for years to come."
"Powning takes her camera, her pen and, most important, her spirit into the landscape. . . . The delicate, often beautiful photographs combine with a quietly spirited naturalistic prose in an Annie Dillard-Henry David Thoreau mode to produce a work evocative in both sensual and domestic ways."
