... the forest, unseen soldiers returned fire; the crack of rifles and the rattle of
machine gun fire was incredibly loud to his office-trained ears. he heard a thump
as a grenade launcher fired, an explosion of dirt, blood, and ichor spraying
upwards a few paces from the forest. Marshall felt the shockwave as a humvee
exploded, a wave of fire and shrapnel ripping through the sabres. Men screamed
in agony as shards of metal and iron splinters lodged in their skin, while others
rolled around, ...

An ideal way to get a budding hunter started in the sport is with some pre-season
forays into the autumn woods where he is an observer rather than hunter. it is
easier to move through the forest unseen and unheard at this time of year, thanks
to the fact that hardwoods still retain their leaves. this means squirrels are less
likely to spot you at a distance. it also makes for quieter movement than is likely to
be the case once dry leaves cover the forest floor, and at this season the tell-tale

He slipped out of the box underneath the truck and into the underbrush of the
forest unseen while everyone's eyes in the choppers were on Eddie and Ernie in
the gear grinding, tire spinning and mud slinging truck. The one thing he didn't
anticipate on this day was that the McClellan brothers would be sitting out there,
watching. He had fooled everyone but Zeke, Buford and Melvin. Zeke had been
expecting a trick of some sort as soon as he saw the truck turn toward Buck's

After reading biologist David George Haskell's marvelous The Forest Unseen: A
Year's Watch in Nature, I went to hear him give a talk and came away with this
gem: “Wonder increases as speed decreases.” Let us all take this to heart as we
rush into the future. In Tricycle magazine I found meditation teacher Ken
McLeod's account of a three-week retreat where he was instructed to do nothing.
In “Something from Nothing,” he asks, “What is it like to do nothing? I mean, really
do nothing, ...

—David George Haskell, author of The Forest Unseen, Pulitzer Prize finalist “
Patrice's sense of joy and spirit of inquiry inspire me to live in nature more and to
honor the creativity often buried beneath the 'business' of life. Her writing is
seamless as she navigates the depth of provocative insights about both nature
and art-making. Step into Nature instantly becomes an old friend, urging us oh so
gently to wake up to the wonder around and within us.” —Tandy Beal, artistic

ground and lay down, looking upward at the patches of sky among the pine tops.
My God, let me die here now. No, not until Eleanor is safe andJohn is well
married. And then, my Lord, when it's time, bring me here and let me stay. She
closed her eyes and remembered the night, some five months after her marriage
to Ben, when she'd awakened beside him. Seeing the starlight through the open

... hill toward Lady Miriam's camp, Dinadan made his plans. He would return by a
different route and approach through the woods behind the camp. Leaving his
horse in the woods, he would enter the camp on foot and steal up to Lady
Miriam's tent from the rear. If all went well, he would find her alone and would be
able to speak to her before Sir Annui knew he had returned. The plan almost
worked. Dinadan managed to approach the camp and conceal his horse in the
forest unseen.

No sentry had seen them pass, a fact which did not at all surprise the sentries,
who knew that spirits pass through the forest unseen at all times if they choose to
do so. Orando, being a good soldier, had just made the rounds of his sentry posts
and was still awake when Muzimo located him. "What news have you brought me
, O Muzimo?" demanded the son of Lobongo. "What word of the enemy?" "We
have been to his village," replied Muzimo, "The Spirit of Nyamwegi, Lupingu, and
I." ...
