Koviashuvik: A Time and Place of Joy (Sierra Club Nature and Natural Philosophy Library) by Sam Wright

Koviashuvik: A Time and Place of Joy (Sierra Club Nature and Natural Philosophy Library). She makes the distinction in the postscript which I appreciate between "place" and our relationship to "place". She writes, "This journal is less about a place than a way of looking at life in any place. In the whole of it I agree with that and so her writing though in a physical place most distinctly not like mine is still filled with attitudes and "moments present in quiet joy and happiness" that I too can and have been present to. She prompted me to continue to explore my place from that place. 4 people found this helpful except through Billie and Sam Wright. It's not necessarily a riveting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat or makes you turn the next page even though you have something else to do.

A Time and Place of Joy. By Sam Wright. Wright, a former faculty member at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, spent two decades with his wife living in a tiny cabin in the remote Arctic wilderness of Alaska's Brooks Range. Here is his powerful memoir of those years, a memoir that begins with him confronting a bear that's trying to break into his house at four in the morning and goes on to cover natural Arctic events from the migratory cycles of "Igitak"-the Arctic tern whose appearance he so lovingly observed-to the marvelous life of the caribou and the wisdom.

Keeping nature journals is an important part of my workflow, so I picked this book back up and read through it again. It reminded me of some tips This is a solid introduction to sketching in nature by Cathy Johnson. The book covers graphite, pen/ink, colored pencil and watercolor techniques used to render nature subjects in the field. I bought this book in 2002 and it has been on my shelf ever since. It reminded me of some tips and techniques that I haven't used in a long time and am sure to incorporate into my nature journaling going forward. Another place to look if you're interested in sketching in nature. Not the best book on the subject (I still like How to Keep a Naturalist's Notebook by Susan Leigh Tomlinson best). The most useful parts are toward the beginning when she talks about tools and materials and then the three pencil tricks.

Likewise, Sierra Club artists used the camera to present nature as sacred and sublime; their photographs encouraged audiences to view wilderness as a place where people are visitors who do not remain. During the 1930s, documentary films had portrayed environmental reforms to mass audiences, uniting spectators through sublime images of disaster and transcendent scenes of technology restoring the landscape. The Exhibit Format series emerged at a time when more Americans were consuming images of the natural world. From the wildlife documentaries of Walt Disney and Marlin Perkins to the popular tourist magazine Arizona Highways, the camera presented and circulated visions of wild nature. The book was called This Is Dinosaur, and with this title, the Sierra Club announced not only a place but also gave notice that it had arrived as a national organization.

A Nature Journal is a place to grow your thoughts, feelings, ideas, activities, observations, and relationship with the natural world. And, it is an opportunity to interpret your inner thoughts out into the natural world and a space where the natural world can flow into you and leave a permanent mark. We can learn a lot about keeping a Nature Journal from John Muir, the inspiration for, and the first president of the Sierra Club. Muir studied and cared about wilderness. He sought to preserve wild places and is considered one of the founders of the modern environmental movement
