Overview

In Crossing Open Ground, Barry Lopez weaves the same invigorating spell as in his National Book Award-winning classic Arctic Dreams. Here, he travels through the American Southwest and Alaska, discussing endangered wildlife and forgotten cultures. Through his crystalline vision, Lopez urges us toward a new attitude, a re-enchantment with the world that is vital to our sense of place, our well-being . . . our very survival.

Lopez looks at flocks of geese, and bull riders, and the tracks of Arctic fox in the snow, and then he tells us about ourselves. He restores to us the name for what it is we want. Philadelphia Inquirer

Barry Lopez is the best nature writer of our decade, repeatedly reminding us of the ages-old ties between the wild places and humanity. Sacramento Bee
