Why I came West by Rick Bass ( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 897 libraries worldwide
A poignant look at the thirty-year journey of one of our country's great naturalist writers, Why I Came West explores how Rick Bass fell in love with the mystique of the West (and the Yaak Valley of northwestern Montana in particular) as a dramatic landscape, as an idea, and as a way of life. In a series of moving chapters, Bass describes his own transformation into the writer, hunter, and environmental activist that he is today. He profiles how the rugged, wild landscape smoothed out his own rough edges; attempts to define the appeal of the West that so transfixed him as a boy, a place of mountains and outlaws and continual rebirth, just beyond whatever was near it; and he describes his role as a reluctant environmental activist--sometimes at odds with his own neighbors--unable and unwilling to stand idly by and watch this treasured place disappear.--From publisher description.

The wild marsh : four seasons at home in Montana by Rick Bass ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 799 libraries worldwide
Author Bass's account of life in Montana's Yaak Valley is a crowning achievement in his career. It begins with his family settling in for the long Montana winter, and captures all the harbingers of change that mark each passing month--the initial cruel teasing of spring, the splendor and fecundity of summer, and the bittersweet memories evoked by fall. It is full of rich observation about what it takes to live in the valley--ruggedness, improvisation and, of course, duct tape. Bass emerges not just as a writer but as a father, a neighbor, and a gifted observer, uniquely able to bring us close to the drama and sanctity of small things, ensuring that though the wilderness is increasingly at risk, the voice of the wilderness will not disappear.--From publisher description.
