Reviews

"There has never been a book like Refuge, an entirely original yet tragically common story, brought exquisitely to life."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Moving and loving... both a natural history of an ecological phenomenon [and] a Mormon family saga... A heroic book."
--The Washington Post Book World

"A record of loss, healing grace, and the search for a human place in nature's large design. Terry Tempest Williams's courage is matched by the earnest beauty of her language and the keen compassion of her observations." --Louise Erdrich

"The wonderful thing about Refuge is that Terry Williams is too full of life herself, and too fascinated by all its manifestations, to write a gloomy book. There isn't a page in Refuge that doesn't whistle with the sound of wings." --Wallace Stegner

"Brilliantly conceived... one of the most significant environmental essays of our time." --The Kansas City Star
