How to Catch a Mole – by Marc Hamer
Greystone Books | UTP Distribution
How to Catch a Mole is going on the shelf beside Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. The soft, sure rhythms of the seasons, the villain and benefactor, the mess of birth and death, the tidy, miraculous arrangements of seeds and petals. Circles opening and closing. A beautiful book.
– Roberta Samec
This an almost other-worldly read about a man who has spent so much of his life in nature that his relationship with it differs from anyone I know. If you want to learn how to catch a mole you certainly will (as well as the way NOT to catch a mole) but it is absolutely magical to be invited into Marc’s world. The charming wood cut style drawings and period poetic snippets add a dreamy quality to the writing. I highly recommend!
