“Zwinger knows . . . that good writing is enough to inspire love and bring knowledge.” —AUDUBON NATURALIST NEWS

Known for beautifully observed and illustrated books about the rivers, deserts, and mountains of the West, Ann Haymond Zwinger here focuses on the guiding principles of her life as naturalist. Even as she writes, she “looks” with a notebook and pencil, believing that “to know the world intimately is the beginning of caring.”

In Shaped by Wind and Water, Zwinger moves from details to the larger patterns that link them to the entire world, finding in the filaments of mushrooms access to the essential connectedness of life. As artist, writer, and naturalist, she feels that her responsibility is to create a link between scientific natural history and the reader who can learn to love the land.
