About the Author
"[Horizon's Lens is ] a wide-ranging, warm, and intellectually generous work of hybrid scholarship and personal essay."--Catherine Meeks, ISLE--Catherine Meeks "ISLE "
"Dodd's prose gives the impression that every single word--in meaning, sound, and relation to other words--was carefully chosen and crafted."--Melanie Dylan Fox, Terrain.org--Melanie Dylan Fox "Terrain.org "
"A lyrical exploration of landscape, language, and history. At once intimate and wide-ranging, Dodd's walking meditations weave unexpected connections between the places and ideas she explores. . . . This latest volume confirms that Dodd is one of America's finest essayists of place."--Chris Arthur, author of Words of the Grey Wind
"Dodd entwines the details of her camping life--cold nights, hard beds, basic food--with her ruminations on culture, anthropology, geography, time and many other subjects. These essays . . . demand to be read and then reread with care."--Kirkus Reviews-- (06/12/2012)
