Jack Loeffler is an aural historian, environmentalist, writer, radio producer, and sound-collage artist. He is the author or editor of many books, including Thinking Like a Watershed: Voices from the West, Survival Along the Continental Divide: An Anthology of Interviews, and Adventures with Ed: A Portrait of Abbey (all from UNM Press).


"Stirring."--Albuquerque Journal

"It's impossible not to find humor in Loeffler's writing. He's an easygoing storyteller, and each fairly short snippet of his book can rope you in like a fireside tale."--The Durango Telegraph

"This memoir is at once a desideratum, a manifesto, a listener's guide to the Southwest, and a call to arms."--Journal of Folklore Research

"[Loeffler's] descriptions of the Southwestern ecosystem shine throughout."--Santa Fe New Mexican

"Yes, heading into the wind can be hard work, but as Loeffler shows when meditating on such important issues, we must do better. . . . His dreams might not all be attainable, but as goals to aspire to, they give us excellent guidance."--Jemez Thunder

â oeOver these pages, we relive Loefflerâ (TM)s life and learn why he might honestly come to the title of Americaâ (TM)s most interesting and thoughtful man.â �â "Sean Prentiss, author of Finding Abbey: The Search for Edward Abbey and His Hidden Desert Grave

"Loeffler, a Southwestern original, serves up a memoir told with wolfish zest."--Gregory McNamee, 2019 Southwest Books of the Year
