It is hard to miss the nature around us here in Prescott; it is the reason that many of us are here. We are lucky. But how many of us will take the time to walk out to where the Gambel Oaks put on their golden cloaks during their fall finale, pick up a green leaf infused with scarlet to study? Or walk out into the forest and breathe in the vanilla-butterscotch between cracks in the bark of an old growth ponderosa. Leslie's book is here to remind us how of how essential it is for us to stay in touch with these wonders, in touch with our own wonder.— Susan Lang
