A walker's guide to the art of observation.

These eleven exquisite, clever and and tenderly recounted small adventures remind me of something I learned back when I lived in India: the need to perceive the scent behind the smell. Alexandra Horowitz has attempted much the same thing with her eyes - much aided by the seeing of others - and has in consequence become increasingly successful in perceiving what one might call the sight behind the scene. Her resulting epiphanies are available to us all, if we take care to learn from her, in this lovely book, just how it is done.--Simon Winchester "author of The Map that Changed the World"
