OUT OF THE CORNER OF YOUR EYE is about discovering the things that hide in plain sight: ripples in the sand, creeping hills, jumping spiders, singing sand, the sound of wind in poplars, life in the cracks of the sidewalk. Less a science book of explanations, it is more a book of reflections about nature, never shying away from poems, personal narratives, and stories that capture the essence and beauty of a thing. The author’s pencil drawings go beyond scientific illustration, and tap his own lived encounters with nature.
This book would have readers return to the world they left behind at ages three or four. Bugs, clouds, shadows, and sounds trembling aspen leaves make in breeze were not ignored then, but were appreciated with overflowing curiosity. As human interactions became more important, first through direct social interactions, and later through audio and video technology, the natural world around us slipped away from our consciousness. OUT OF THE CORNER OF YOUR EYE wakens us to what we have let go, the things that matter.
