**"It's impossible to imagine another writer in America who is better than Craig Childs at elegizing the fearsome and confounding appeal of our most austere landscapes."
KEVIN FEDARKO, author of The Emerald Mile
From the author of The Secret Knowledge of Water and Atlas of a Lost World** comes a deeply felt essay collection focusing upon a vivid series of desert iconsa sheet of virga over Monument Valley, white seashells in dry desert sand, boulders impossibly balanced. Craig Childs delves into the primacy of the land and the profound nature of the more-than-human.
