Annie Dillard fue una de las primeras mujeres que decidió desafiar desde la escritura y de forma rigurosa el estereotipo masculino del hombre de la frontera y de su relación con la naturaleza salvaje. En este libro se relatan sus exploraciones en la naturaleza salvaje del estado de Virginia, durante las cuales da cuenta de una capacidad de observación que resulta tan insólita como reveladora.
