Perfectly crafted. . . . [These] stories expand of their own accord, lingering in the mind the way intense light lingers in the retina. –Los Angeles Times
Powerful. . . . [Lopez] can steal your breath away. –Minneapolis Tribune

An artist in language – a first-rate American writer. Lopez goes straight to the heart of the peculiar sensations, both physical and mental, known to all who have allowed themselves open communion with the land. – Edward Abbey
Flawless. As painstakingly crafted and as resonant as a good classical guitar. –The New York Times Book Review
Lopez succeeds in awakening our fleeting yearnings and hidden feelings. This book should be savored for the force of its imagery and the magic of its prose. –Houston Chronicle
