In Seeing the Raven, Peter M. Leschak blends humor, philosophy, and a keen sense of nature's beauty and challenges. Drawing on his many interests -- fly fishing and wild-land fire fighting, backyard astronomy and ecology, chain saws and ice skates, turtles and timberwolves -- he confronts questions that transcend the particulars of his experience. Rich with anecdotes and allusions, its moments of pathos and joy unfold against the beautiful, though often forbidding, landscape of northeastern Minnesota. It is a book about death, renewal, and a search for meaning in nature.
