"Make the Earth your companion. Walk lightly on it, as other creatures do." With this powerfully reverent refrain, readers are remiznded to treat the world around us with the respect it deserves and the care it needs. Mountains, lakes, rivers, grasslands, forests, deserts—even the sky above—all of our natural environs have some message to impart, if we will but listen. Picturesque illustrations imbue the images with mysticism, making visual connections to not only the words themselves but to the feelings of wonder they evoke.
