This tender place : the story of a wetland year by Laurie Lawlor( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the deaths of her father and father-in-law, Laurie Lawlor discovers an unlikely place for healing and transformation in a wetland in southeastern Wisconsin - a landscape of abundant and sometimes inaccessible beauty that has often been ignored, misunderstood, and threatened by human destruction. In her decade-long personal wetland journey, she examines the sky, delves underwater, and peers between sedges in all seasons and all times of day." "This Tender Place is a celebration of nature, the elements, and humanity. From the wetland's genesis during the ice age to its survival in the twenty-first century, Lawlor chronicles the universal ties among people, wild places, and healthy wetlands. This Tender Place is at its heart a story of refuge and renewal refracted through the lens of life within the wetlands - one of the most productive, yet most endangered, ecosystems in the world."--Jacket
