Description

'Williams's language has its own visceral beauty. . . . The Hour of Land is one of the best nature

books I've read in years.'―Andrea Wulf, The New York Times Book Review'If you have never set

foot in a national park, love the wilderness, like history, or enjoy great storytelling, The Hour of

Land is calling you.'―The Philadelphia Inquirer'Terry Tempest Williams is a force of nature in at

least two ways. First, she pleads forcefully on behalf of the natural world, especially national parks,

wilderness areas, and endangered species. And, second, she writes as she damn well pleases. . .

. The author's trademark poetic prose dominates every page.'―Dennis Drabelle, The Washington

Post'[A] necessary new book . . . Williams shows how national parks can be both symbols of and

actual catalysts for the things that are best about America, offering a montage of grandeur that can

not only make one tear up in gratitude and an embarrassing sort of patriotic pride but also

demonstrate the real value of these 'wholesome' feelings to human emotional life, spurring one to

engage differently with the world. . . . Williams' is only one voice in the polyphonic story of the

American landscape. But it is an especially valuable one in addressing how land, even that which

is nominally preserved in a state of Edenic purity, shifts with this countryâ€s social history as

much as it does through geology and time.'― Jenny Hendrix, Slate'Whether contemplating the

spiritual life she finds 'inside the heart of the wild' or marveling at the peaks and monuments that

comprise 'our best idea' – the National Parks system – Williams movingly urges us to

remember that 'heaven is here.''―O Magazine'Williams (When Women Were Birds), a longtime

environmental activist, adds a meditative element to memoir as she shares her abiding love for

Americaâ€s open spaces. . . . In passionate and insightful prose, Williams celebrates the beauty

of the American landscape while reinforcing the necessity of responsible

stewardship.'―Publishers Weekly'A broadly ambitious and deeply impassioned collection of

essays . . . There are few nonfiction writers who can capture the essence of the American

wilderness landscape as eloquently as Williams. . . . Her distinctive prose style is capable of

conveying a deep spiritual dimension within the physical setting. . . . An important, well-informed,

and moving read for anyone interested in learning more about Americaâ€s national

parks.'―Kirkus Reviews'Readers who like their prose ardent and their politics leaning left will take

particular pleasure in The Hour of Land. . . . Williams is frequently a lyrical writer and an intrepid

thinker. . . . Reading her is better than buying a commemorative postage stamp ― she delivers

us into a more thoughtful grove.'―Karen R. Long, Newsday'An impassioned call to preserve and

protect our national park system, Americaâ€s network of natural splendor, which celebrates its


100th anniversary this year. . . . Repeatedly, [Williams] calls f
