Reviews of Death Valley and the Northern Mojave

Reviews of From the Island’s Edge: A Sitka Reader
“From The Island’s Edge: A Sitka Reader compiles the work of individuals who have participated in a brilliant, challenging, and innovative series of workshops called “The Sitka Symposium of Human Values and the Written Word”. Poets and astronomers, anthropologists and novelists, natural historians and philosophers, linguists and folklorists offer their perspectives (often rooted in Western and Native American traditions, and in the written and spoken word). They juxtapose aspects of the human experience that are seldom considered in relationship: the poetic imagination and the reasoned argument, and ultimately, the public shape of our private lives. The contributors include Barry Lopez, Terry Tempest Williams, Jim Dodge, Robert Hass, William Kittredge, Stephanie Mills, John Haines, Richard Nelson, Pattiann Rogers, and others. From The Island’s Edge isn’t just food for thought, its a feast for the mind.”
