Wondering is at the heart of nature writing - both in the sense of 'wow, look at that beautiful or amazing thing!' and in the sense of questioning or pondering on why or how some natural phenomenon is as it is. For years, I've wandered and wondered, and written down some of the highlights. Earth Wondering is a compilation of four pamphlets of the resulting nature musings, one for each of the the four seasons.
Gleanings is a more substantial sample of Mandy's prize-winning writing - three stories, for those of you who like fiction, three poems in case poetry is more your thing, and three essays for non-fiction readers. Hopefully here there's something for everyone!
