"Th[is] book is a unique blend of watercolor and the written word, a sort of picture book for grown ups.... Dillard encourages writers to "give it all" and not to hoard for later that which seems good... The words are inspiring in many ways.... The book itself is not traditionally bound, but opens up as an accordian to stretch 20 feet. ... This book would be a unique gift for a writer or collector of Dillard's books (or those of Susan Cheever, who wrote the introduction)... In fact, some writers might even be so bold as to unfold the book and hang it up on the wall, as a giant sort of motivational poster."
