All my rivers are gone : a journey of discovery through Glen Canyon by Katie Lee( )

3 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Brower, who has always regretted the Sierra Club's failure to save the Glen Canyon, called it "The Place No One Knew". But Katie Lee was among a handful of men and women who knew the 170 miles of Glen Canyon very well. She'd made sixteen trips down the river, even named some of the side canyons. Glen Canyon and the river that ran through it had changed her life. Her descriptions of a magnificent desert oasis and its rich archaeological ruins are a paean to paradise lost

Refuge : an unnatural history of family and place by Terry Tempest Williams( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 1983 Terry Tempest Williams learned that her mother was dying of cancer. That same season, the Great Salt Lake began to rise to record heights, threatening the herons, owls, and snowy egrets that Williams, a poet and naturalist, had come to gauge her life by. One event was nature at its most random, the other a by-product of rogue technology: Terry's mother, and Terry herself, had been exposed to the fallout of atomic bomb tests in the 1950s. As it interweaves these narratives of dying and accommodation, Refuge transforms tragedy into a document of renewal and spiritual grace, resulting in a work that has become a classic

The story of my heart by Richard Jefferies( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While browsing a Stonington, Maine, bookstore, Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams discovered a rare copy of an exquisite autobiography by nineteenth-century British nature writer Richard Jefferies, who develops his understanding of a "soul-life" while wandering the wild countryside of Wiltshire, England. Brooke and Terry, like John Fowles, Henry Miller, and Rachel Carson before, were inspired by the prescient words of this visionary writer, who describes ineffable feelings of being at one with nature. In an introduction and essays set alongside Jefferies' writing, the Williams share their personal pilgrimage to Wiltshire to understand this man of "cosmic consciousness" and how their exploration of Jefferies deepened their own relationship while illuminating dilemmas of modernity, the intrinsic need for wildness, and what it means to be human in the twenty-first century

Patriotism and the American land : essays by Richard K Nelson( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terrorism. Homeland Security. Patriotism. Since September 11, 2001, these terms have emerged as a fundamental part of our cultural lexicon, with their unspoken assumptions and attendant emotions being used to inspire and buttress a set of cultural, political, and military responses to the events of that tragic day. In the months since that moment, most Americans have been immersed in a process of reflection and an ongoing review of the words and actions of our leaders, our media, and our fellow citizens. In different contexts we have been moved to ask the following questions. What is terrorism? What does a secure homeland really look like? Who is a patriot? The three essays in Patriotism and the American Land attempt to address these questions
