A collection of natural and unnatural events devoted to breaking down the wall of hostility between us andCreation. Certain places make us more vulnerable to the Holy. This is a real phenomenon, not some romantic notiona spiritual resource as full and as valuable as any other "natural resource." Approached with devotion, these places have the power to heal and to reveal. "Awanadjo" is Algonkian for "small, misty mountain," referring to Blue Hill Mountain in Blue Hill, Maine; but it can just as well describe your mountain or any sacred place that has the power to transform and impart the sense of being at home in Nature. Following in the long tradition of natural theology from Lao-tse to St. Francis, John Scotus Erigena, Newton, Darwin, Thoreau, Rachel Carson, Wendell Berry, and Annie Dillard, this volume gathers decades of Rob McCall's meticulous observation and buoyant commentary about a mountain and its surroundings. Woodcut illustrations.
