The beloved author of Refuge, Terry Tempest Williams is one of the countrys most eloquent and imaginative writers. The desert is her blood. In this potent collage of stories, essays, and testimony, Red makes a stirring case for the preservation of Americas Redrock Wilderness in the canyon country of southern Utah. As passionate as she is persuasive, Williams writes lyrically about the deserts power and vulnerability, describing wonders that range from an ancient Puebloan sash of macaw feathers found in Canyonlands National Park to the desert tortoisean animal that can teach us the slow art of revolutionary patience as it extends our notion of kinship with all life. She examines the civil war being waged in the West today over public and private uses of landan issue that divides even her own family. With grace, humor, and compassionate intelligence, Williams reminds us that the preservation of wildness is not simply a political process but a spiritual one.Lush elegies to the wilderness. . . .
