Product Overview

Sky Time in Gray''s River is an elegant meditation on life in the rural Northwest. Although Robert Michael Pyle is a lepidopterist and southwestern Washington is notable for its lack of butterflies, something about the village of Gray''s River spoke to him on a visit thirty years ago. Ever since then he has lived in the village, one of the first to be established near the mouth of the Columbia River and only tenuously connected to the world of the twenty-first century. Sky Time brings Gray''s River to life by compressing those thirty years into twelve chapters, following the lives of the people, plants, and animals month by month through the seasons.
Through his story of how the village has changed his life, Pyle illustrates how a special place can transform anyone lucky enough to find it. He shows that you don''t have to travel far to see something new every day -- if you know how to look.
