“Drawn to Nature from Storey Publishing ($14) features a selection of author Clare Walker Leslie’s journal pages that encourages its readers to slow down and look around. The beauty of nature, she says, is in the small details of watching birds before a storm or a squirrel before winter. And it can happen just outside your door in the backyard.” – The Tennessean (Nashville, TN)
“It can be inspiring to look at…Drawn to Nature by Clare Walker Leslie. After a few months of keeping track of nature, you will be able to look back on your own journals and notice not only how the natural world changes around you, but also how you have changed over time. Now that’s worth taking note.” – Island Ad-Vantages (Stonington, ME)
