Reviews
Praise for Gretel Ehrlich and The Solace of Open Spaces

"Any one of [its 12 chapters] stands beautifully on its own . . . She brings the long vistas into focus with the poise of an Ansel Adams." --The New York Times Book Review

"A stunning rumination on life on Wyoming's High Plains . . . Ehrlich's gorgeous prose is as expansive as a Wyoming vista, as charged as a bolt of prairie lightning." --Newsday

"Ehrlich's best prose belongs in a league with Annie Dillard and even Thoreau. The Solace of Open Spaces releases the bracing air of the wilderness into the stuffy, heated confines of winter in civilization." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Ehrlich [is] a gifted essayist and nature writer." --The Washington Post

"Vivid, tough, and funny . . . an exuberant and powerful book." --Annie Dillard
