Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, by Annie Dillard, s the story of a dramatic year in Virginia’s Roanoke Valley. Dillard sets out to see what she can see. What she sees are astonishing incidents of “beauty tangled in a rapture with violence.” It’s a one year exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons.
