Description

"Miranda Weiss's Tide, Feather, Snow is beautifully poetic, her observations are expansive, and the pace and rhythm in which she writes are perfect.” — Lynne Cox, author ofGrayson and Swimming to Antarctica

"Tide, Feather, Snow is about the resplendence and subtleties of coastal Alaska, and about one woman’s attempt to be fully present in them. Weiss serves as a skilled and poetic witness to a place undergoing incessant change." — Anthony Doerr, author of The Shell Collector

A memoir of moving to Alaska—and staying—by a writer whose gift for writing about place and natural beauty is reminiscent of John McPhee (Coming into the Country) and Jonathan Raban (Passage to Juneau).
