Timely and unsettling essays from an important and beloved writer and conservationist

In Erosion, Terry Tempest Williams's fierce, spirited, and magnificent essays are a howl in the desert. She sizes up the continuing assaults on America's public lands and the erosion of our commitment to the open space of democracy. She asks: "How do we find the strength to not look away from all that is breaking our hearts?"
We know the elements of erosion: wind, water, and time. They have shaped the spectacular physical landscape of our nation. Here, Williams bravely and brilliantly explores the many forms of erosion we face: of democracy, science, compassion, and trust. She examines the dire cultural and environmental implications of the gutting of Bear Ears National Monument??sacred lands to Native Peoples of the American Southwest; of the undermining of the Endangered Species Act; of the relentless press by the fossil fuel industry that has led to a panorama in which "oil rigs light up the horizon." And she testifies that the climate crisis is not an abstraction, offering as evidence the drought outside her door and, at times, within herself.
These essays are Williams's call to action, blazing a way forward through difficult and dispiriting times. We will find new territory??emotional, geographical, communal. The erosion of desert lands exposes the truth of change. What has been weathered, worn, and whittled away is as powerful as what remains. Our undoing is also our becoming.
Erosion is a book for this moment, political and spiritual at once, written by one of our greatest naturalists, essayists, and defenders of the environment. She reminds us that beauty is its own form of resistance, and that water can crack stone

Pretty depressing. Climate change isn’t too cheery, especially in Wyoming. ( )
  Abiquail | Apr 24, 2021 |
“I would like to hear the words "public lands" spoken in every election debate, with candidates holding both government and corporations accountable in their oversight and use. The fact of more than three hundred million visits to our national parks last year tells me I am not alone.”

This is the latest essay collection by TTW, one of our treasured naturalists. This one focuses on “erosion”. The current assaults on our public lands and the erosion of science and environmental concerns. The centerpiece here is the Bear Ears National Monument, which Trump infamously tried to strip of his national monument status, in 2017. This is happening in her home state of Utah. TTW offers such a clear and concise plea, to all Americans: Wake up and pay attention, before these great lands are ravaged. Her books are also wonderful on audio, with the author's own compassionate delivery. ( )

Not an easy collection to process, but it sings with love of an endangered desert landscape, and the frustrations, joys and connections of the fight to prioritize the quality of the landscape that enhances the quality of our life. ( )
