Reviews

"Combining personal experiences with nature writing and social critique, Gaard touches on diverse and compelling subjects, including homelessness, job dissatisfaction, logging, and a lesbian couple's struggle to fit in."--Booklist

"This narrative provides rich terrain for those interested in questions of environmental ethics and social justice."--Western American Literature

"Whether camping out at the top of a glacier on Mt. Baker, or kneeling on the shore of Lake Superior paying homage to the Ojibwe grandmother who inhabits it, Gaard exemplifies a woman who is both as fluid as the rivers she loves and as true to herself as a river to its channel."--Turning Wheel
