THE DELIGHTFUL HORROR 
OF FAMILY BIRDING

by Eli J. Knapp

Eli Knapp takes readers from a leaky dugout canoe in Tanzania and the mating grounds of Ecuador’s cock-of-the-rock to a juniper titmouse's perch at the Grand Canyon and the migration of hooded mergansers in a New York swamp, exploring life’s deepest questions all along the way.

MOSTLY WHITE

by Alison Hart

Spanning four generations of a mixed-race family, Mostly White is a powerful tale of inter-generational trauma and the healing brought by wildness, music, and the resilience of women. From Emma, who survives the abuse of an Indian residential school in 1890s Maine, to Ella, who navigates color lines in 1980s New York City, Alison Hart’s unforgettable characters fight to form their own identities and honor the call of their ancestors.

DESERT CABAL

by Amy Irvine

Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness turns 50 this fall, and is due for a celebration and a talking to. In Desert Cabal, Amy Irvine helps to make contemporary the dated, white male narrative that is still very much at the heart of today’s wilderness movement—even as she celebrates the lens through which Abbey taught so many to love the wild remains of the nation. From a quiet solitude to a roaring cabal, Ed Abbey has met his match in Amy Irvine.

THE OASIS THIS TIME

by Rebecca Lawton

Water, the most critical fluid on the planet, is seen as murderer, savior, benefactor, and Holy Grail in many arid North American communities. Fluvial geologist and former Colorado River guide Rebecca Lawton follows species both human and wild to their watery roots—in warming deserts, near rising Pacific tides, on endangered, tapped-out rivers, and in growing urban ecosystems.
