The Abundance, Paperback Book

The Abundance Paperback

Part of the Canons series


Annie Dillard has spent a lifetime examining the world around her with eyes wide open, drinking in all things intensely and relentlessly.

Whether observing a sublime lunar eclipse or a moth consumed in a candle flame, the trembling of lily pads on a pond or hundreds of red-winged blackbirds taking flight, Dillard's awe at the fragility of the natural world rejuvenates and inspires pleasure and heartache.

Precise in language and deeply meditative in spirit, this is a landmark collection from one of America's masters.
