Spiritual perspective on books

Waiting for the butterflies

In her book of essays Small Wonder (New York, Harper—Collins, 2002), Barbara Kingsolver writes: "People need wild places. Whether or not we think we do, we do. We need to be able to taste grace and know once again that we desire it."

Ms. Kingsolver continues: "Wildness puts us in our place. It reminds us that our plans are small and somewhat absurd. It reminds us why, in those cases in which our plans might influence many future generations, we ought to choose carefully."
