This book of nine sprawling essays meanders through what it means to be lost: physically, spiritually, emotionally, or figuratively. Although a few of the essays dragged a bit and occasionally crossed the line into tedium, others were tremendously good. In her writing, Rebecca Solnit has a unique ability to mix cerebral stoicism with openness and emotion, giving A Field Guide to Getting Lost a pleasant balance.
