Recensioner

This book is the transcription of three days' conversation between Lopez and Julia Martin, a friend of long standing, at Lopez's home in the remote PNW woods. These are the sorts of conversations that, in another setting, might come across as pompous or pedantic. But here, it's just an older friend trying to convey some of the ideas and perceptions he has accumulated over a lifetime of work. I have highlighted many passages.

I enjoyed this very much. Lopez travels to these amazing places and makes them real for the reader by taking tiny details apart and looking at them in unique, insightful and unconventional ways. This is a man who cares about our planet and incites others to care through his thoughtful writing.

Interesting topics and observations, but the prose is too flowery, and sometimes melodramatic, for me.

Barry Lopez began preparing these twenty-six essays, four of which were never before published, prior to his death in 2020. Published posthumously in 2022 with an introduction by Rebecca Solnit, it shows the depth and breadth of Lopez's travels, interests in nature, concern about climate change, and personal history.

The oldest essay was first published in 1996, the most recent in 2020; some of the older ones were incredibly prescient and current. Lopez has a deep appreciation for the land and the wisdom of Indigenous peoples. He knows his science, but he's a writer, and brings things to life and immediacy for those of us who have not had the same experiences he does. And he also addresses the personal - in one essay, discussing the man who sexually abused him and excoriating a society in which that kind of abuse is generally accepted on a certain level. It took me over a month to read, not because I wasn't enjoying it, but because I needed to read only an essay or two at a time and ponder. I also really enjoyed spotting connections: one essay was about Wallace Stegner, for example, and I loved learning that two authors I have admired overlap in some way. Whether you're a long-time fan of Lopez's work or want a sense of what his writing is like, this is a great place to go.… (mer)
