Pilgrim at Tinker Creek has continued to change people's lives for over
thirty years. A passionate and poetic reflection on the mystery of creation
with its beauty on the one hand and cruelty on the other, it has become a
modern American literary classic in the tradition of Thoreau. Living in
solitude in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke, Virginia, and observing
the changing seasons, the flora and fauna, the author reflects on the
nature of creation and of the God who set it in motion. Whether the images
are cruel or lovely, the language is memorably beautiful and poetic, and
insistently celebratory. Just pay attention, Dillard urges throughout, and
you will find yourself 'sailing headlong and breathless under the gale
force of the spirit'.
