" TTW continues to inspire and enrich the reader with this collection of prose stories and essays. My favorites are "Winter Solstice at the Moab Slough" and "The Village Watchman" which I have heard her read aloud thrice. Great material. " said.

" This book has been around a long time, but it is one of my most favorites. It's one of those that I would have to read parts aloud to myself over again, because the language and what the author had to say was so poetic and beautiful. " said.

" Reading Terry Tempest Williams makes me sad that I didn't study environmental science, and glad that I spent a childhood in the woods. Her interweaving of stories and scientific fact, imagery and quotations makes me want to do more hiking, learning, and writing. " said.

" Williams writes as if she has bathed in the belly of the earth. She is a compelling author who wants you to believe in the uncusory power of nature and our communion with it. She reminds you that it's ok to feel. This is a powerful book that affected me profoundly, and I highly recommend it. " said.

" Love Williams and found this at a library sale. She gives a theory of the world as a n echo-system and it's natural importance. lIke that she talks about places I have been and some so alien, I want to get on the next train or plane and hike out into the world ( altho best if she came along!) " said.

" This collection of short essays is full of the passion for nature that has drawn me to all the works by Terry Tempest Williams. A quick read, this collection would be a nice introduction for people unfamiliar with her work as a nature writer. One of my favorites is her eulogy for Edward Abbey. " said.

" As early as page 5, there are jewels that make this book a gem. In describing the use of a guide in Maasailand, she eloquently writes: "Samuel smells rain the night before it falls. I trust his instincts and borrow them until I uncover my own." Enjoyed the imagery, the contact with nature and the sense of wholeness Terry brings to her material. " said.

" Well written essays about wild places, many of which I've visited. Definitely with a conservationist viewpoint and objecting to some current government policies but I felt more invited than coerced which is a nice change. Plenty of food for thought. " said.
