Stirring the Mud
On Swamps, Bogs, and Human Imagination
by Barbara Hurd
 
In these nine evocative essays, Barbara Hurd explores the seductive allure of bogs, swamps, and wetlands.

Hurd's forays into the land of carnivorous plants, swamp gas, and bog men provide fertile ground for rich thoughts about mythology, literature, Eastern spirituality, and human longing. In her observations of these muddy environments, she finds ample metaphor for human creativity, imagination, and fear.

This is the first volume in a trilogy that concludes with Entering the Stone and Walking the Wrack Line.
