    Growing up in Virginia's Allegheny Mountains, 11-year-old Charlie York lives at the foot of an endless peak called Angel's Rest, a place his momma told him angels rested before coming down to help folks. In 1967 his town was a poor boy's paradise...until a shotgun blast killed Charlie's father and put his mother on trial for murder.

  • Timothy; or, Notes of an Abject Reptile

    Story

    Few writers have attempted to explore the natural history of a particular animal by adopting the animal's own sensibility. But Verlyn Klinkenborg, with his deeply empathetic relation to the world around him, has done just that, and done it brilliantly, in Timothy; or Notes of an Abject Reptile.

    Stephen says: "No abject reptile, this!"
    "wow annie dillard in a turtle shell!"
    Overall

    This turtle is a keen observer of humans and the natural world. I was drawn into her shell and tremendously enjoyed this tale. I feel anyone who appreciates Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek will love this book. The book is based off an actual naturalist's journal kept in the late 18th century England. The author gave the turtle powers of great observation, knowing and feeling. I so enjoyed picture after picture of the natural world recounted by this turtle. I also was filled with empathy. I really loved the narrator. She kept it flowing through the entire book. I'll be looking for more by this author.
