Reviews

"Fierce . . . The most vivid ground-level report from this war zone that I have ever read." --Grace Litchtenstein, The Washington Post

"Bold and original in her thinking, candid and lyrical in expression, Irvine launches a penetrating critique of Mormon sovereignty, the persistent oppression of women, the longing to belong versus the need to be one's self, and the environmental havoc wrought by cattle ranching, 'extreme recreationists' and the federally sanctioned, post-9/11 rush to extract fossil fuels from protected public lands . . . [She] joins red-rock heroes Edward Abbey and Terry Tempest Williams in breaking ranks and speaking up for the living world." --Booklist (starred review)

"A distinctive, affecting meditation on loss--an amalgam of personal history, natural history, and a search for spirituality . . . in unexpected places." --More

"Brilliant." --Charles Bowden

"A singularly elegiac and astringent memoir of dissent." --Donna Seaman, Chicago Tribune

"A transformative memoir." --Terry Tempest Williams
