I love to read all kinds of books, but books of essays are my favorites. Give me any essay written by Barry Lopez and I'm gone for the evening. I would put Gretel Ehrlich and John McPhee in that same company. All three are grounded by place, but their ideas soar from there. In Ehrlich's case, the place she is grounded in is nearby, in Wyoming. I gave this book to my sister-in-law when she was here for a visit last Easter. She returned it to me while I was on a trip back East to care for my father. Re-reading Ehrlich always provides solace and perspective, something badly needed the past couple of weeks. This is a beautifully written book by a woman passionate about life and her place in it. ( )
