Praise for Barry Lopez

"To meet Barry was to feel we were entering a sphere where a language was spoken that had been fading away--the language of our inseparable connection with the natural world--yet here was a speaker who was renewing it. . . . A lonely speaker then--he must often have wondered whether anyone was truly listening--he is an essential speaker now."--Margaret Atwood in Orion Magazine

"I don't know of any other writer who so mesmerizingly, so seemingly effortlessly, weaves together art, science, and poetry. . . .Barry Lopez is one of my literary heroes."--Andrea Wulf

"No one has worked harder to make sense of our present civilization."--Bill McKibben

"There are few writers who give us such thorough companionship and leadership on our life's path and our species's often terrible path."--Sharon Olds in Orion Magazine

"The world is vast, and so are the heart and the curiosity of Barry Lopez. His voice is incomparable and necessary."--David Quammen

"In his intensity, his clarity, and his capacity for wonder, Lopez is unmatched."--Elizabeth Kolbert
