She is perceptive and ever questioning as she investigates what becomes of plants, insects, fish, woodchucks, and squirrels. Along the way, she also discovers that the season brings a wintering of the human spirit as well, and her handling of her own emotions and reactions during the winter is as fascinating as her reports on the natural world.
