Contents Notes
Listening Point is about the spiritual human connection to the environment. "Each time I have gone there I have found something new which has opened up great realms of thought and interest," Sigurd F. Olson writes. "For me it has been a point of discovery and, like all such places of departure, has assumed meaning far beyond the ordinary." Considered by some to contain Olson's most vivid and moving passages, Listening Point is the nature lover's companion for hearing the depth and beauty of the great outdoors.
