Listen to Mary Hood’s interview on NPR’s Off The Page

"Mary Hood extends an invitation, ‘Join me now in walking.’ By all means, accept her invitation. She is the perfect walking companion: a combination botanist, biologist, poet, historian, humorist, conservationist and grand storyteller."—Margaret Kasper Reed, author of Laments Grocery

"Hood delivers a paean to the pastoral country she loves while simultaneously demonstrating how it is under attack by outside forces. This book is both a call to reverence and a call to arms. Walking Seasonal Roads is a small book with a big heart, entertaining and informative."—Edward Kanze, author of The World of John Burroughs

"With a naturalist’s eye and a poet’s heart, Mary Hood re-animates a sense of place in Walking Seasonal Roads."—Edward A. Dougherty, author of Pilgrimage to a Gingko Tree
