David Abram’s evocative story telling in the chapter ‘Depth’ from his Becoming Animal book, is an imaginative and surreal view into the serene and wondrous mind set of a keen hiker, lost in the wilderness. But more then that, Abram’s use of lingual imagination is striking and visualizing. I couldn’t help but relive old memories of making houses in the bush as a kid, using what ever was at our disposal and setting my soul to the beat of mother nature.

Abram describes a shared dreamlike experience of wonder lust in nature, using it to vividly describe depth in not just its physical properties, but also the feelings it creates. This is something I truly respect about this writer and I found I agreed and connected with in this writing.
