Nature's Diary (Nature Library, Penguin)
A lyrical description of the natural history of the far corners of Russia. To those who had followed that secluded path through Prishvin’s green world, filled with light and wind, the earth will never again seem motionless or dull. The feeling of life was so strong in Prishvin that his briefest records, the notes in his Nature’s Diary, became lyric poetry, and his short stories - poems. He had the rare gift of combining accurate, businesslike observations of life in nature with romantic flights of fancy, with a wealth of imagination that was daring and individual. In addition to Prishvin’s wealth of information in botany, phenology, ethnology, agronomy, zoology, folklore, ornithology, geography, meteorology and other sciences, he had the happy gift of seeing nature and nature’s phenomena in their most romantic aspect.
