"A lyrical love letter to the imperiled freshwater mussel..Landis's writing is engaging and personal, demonstrating her bond with the natural world."
"Landis gets under the skin of not so much a single animal, but a whole ecosystem. Part scientist, part observer, and part campaigner against water pollution, she puts herself and her family at the centre of the story. This is neither cloying nor vain, and her growing fascination with her subject is infectious. Immersion is science writing at its best: rich, accurate, and moving."
"This is nature writing at its best."
—Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
