About the Author

Terry Tempest Williams is the award-winning author of fifteen books, including Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, Finding Beauty in a Broken World, When Women Were Birds, and, most recently, The Hour of Land. Her work has been widely anthologized around the world. She lives in Castle Valley, Utah, with her husband, Brooke Williams.


"An eloquent book, full of humor and drama, and--most important--Williams's passion for saving the land she grew up in." --Newsweek

"Full of stories that articulate the spiritual need to preserve wilderness. . . . Williams has made it her mission to translate her fierce love of [the West] into a literature of the desert." --The Washington Post

"There are rich meditations [with] strength and power. . . . From an examination of women's earliest mythic connections to the earth to the accounts of recent protests against nuclear testing, the idea of women as intermediary between earth and human conduct is interwoven throughout. . . . This is all good stuff, the kind of continuous exploration and adventure that makes a life into a pilgrimage." --The New York Times Book Review

"Dazzling. . . . Only a few books in my life have made me feel grateful to the author, and An Unspoken Hunger is one of them." --Maureen O'Neill, The Seattle Times

"Williams has influenced, cajoled, and delighted many, many readers with her compassion and transforming imagination. Like Virginia Woolf, she seems to live on the level of myth and symbol." --Los Angeles Times Book Review
