"Poets and storytellers have always reminded us of our spiritual connections to the land and the world around us -- passed along through dreams, stories, memories, and mythologies. Scott Momaday skillfully continues this tradition in Earth Keeper, from which we can all learn and benefit."--Robert Redford
"Short but satisfying. . . . Using lyrical, heartfelt language, [Momaday] looks back on a life lived close to nature, and on the joy that natural wonders have given him. . . . At a time when bad news is in plentiful supply, readers will find Momaday's words refreshing and comforting in their sincerity."--Publishers Weekly
"Wonder abounds in these pages. . . . Short chapters of prose that read almost like prayers to the natural world."--Kirkus Reviews
"Earth Keeper is a prayer for continuity in these days of uncertainty. I cannot tell you why I loved this book, I can only tell you I wept my way through it. Each page brought me closer to myself, a self I had lost in the pandemic. We need Scott Momaday's calm, clear prose and stories. Words are medicine. There is wisdom in sharing what one knows, especially at a time when we know so little. 'Let me say my heart, ' he says. And he does."--Terry Tempest Williams, author of Erosion: Essays of Undoing
A profound reflection on humanity's relationship with its terrestrial home, the planet Earth.--Booklist
