Canada is a vast country defined by its untamed wilderness, diverse ecologies, and natural beauty. It is a country associated with nature and exploration on the most fundamental level, whose people each have a story to tell of their experiences with the landscape. With Moon and Sun: Essays on Nature, Thistledown Press brings readers a series of intimate encounters from Canadian writers who have experienced their environments in extraordinary ways. Synthesizing interpretation with essay and description with story, these writers deliver their work with reverie and delight. Whether writing from the perspective of a field ecologist, natural historian, prison inmate, minister, poet, philosopher, or dancer, these thoughtful essays examine the intricacies of how the magic of nature, revealed in its myriad forms, transforms human experience into something almost divine.
