"A stunning volume to be savored in a quiet, reflective mood." -- Kirkus Reviews "Lush and suggestive myths." -- Oregon Humanities "Lopez's prose is expansive and spacious but grounded in the specific details of nature... eschews literary expectations in favor of ambiance and a deep sense of mystery, of meaning that lingers at the edges of our normal perceptions." -- Cascadia Weekly "[Barry Lopez is] a powerful storyteller." -- Margaret Atwood "[Barry Lopez] leaves all the right things unsaid, and the silence resonates." -- Time "[Barry Lopez] succeeds in awakening our fleeting yearning and hidden feelings." -- Denver Post "[Barry Lopez] has magic in his words." -- Minneapolis Star-Tribune
