Springer, Tom

SUMMARY

A new voice reveals the unique character of the upper MidwestIn the spirit of other writers who share an affinity for the natural world---authors such as Robert Frost, Emerson, and Bill Bryson---Looking for Hickories is Tom Springer's ode to the people, natural beauty, and lore of the Midwest, a place where bustling communities neighbor a fragile mosaic of quiet woods, fertile meadows, and miles of farmland.Touching and humorous by turns, "Looking for Hickories" captures the essence of the upper Midwest's character with subjects particular to the region yet often universal in theme, from barn building to land preservation to the neglected importance of various trees in the landscape.Like Frost's best poems, Springer's essays often begin with delight and end in wisdom. They mingle a generosity of spirit and the childlike pleasure of discovery with a grown-up sense of a time and a place, if not lost, then in danger of disappearing altogether---things to treasure and preserve for today and tomorrow. Also available "Letters from the Leelanau: Essays of People and Place," by Kathleen Stocking "Lake Country: A Series of Journeys," by Kathleen Stocking "Arboretum America: A Philosophy of the Forest," by Diana Beresford-Kroeger "The Huron River: Voices from the Watershed," edited by John Knott and Keith Taylor Cover art by Ladislav HankaSpringer, Tom is the author of 'Looking for Hickories', published 2008 under ISBN 9780472050239 and ISBN 0472050230.
