Read in January, 2004

A travel writer of a different sort, spending time in threatened places, observing the ways of life of various peoples and describing the land in an almost elegiac way. Meditative visits to the Southwest desert, Africa, Northern Canada, Basque sheepherders in Arizona, grand canyons in Mexico, a valley river in South America with the sword of a dam above its neck, and more. Slender volume short on solutions, but worth reading, certainly.
