Writer and adventurer Craig Childs dwells upon desert icons—human, animal, and otherwise—in these contemplative and visceral essays.
From the author of The Secret Knowledge of Water and Atlas of a Lost World comes a deeply felt essay collection focusing upon a vivid series of desert icons—a half-blind bighorn ram, a sheet of virga over Monument Valley, solitude on the Green River. Craig Childs delves into the primacy of the land and the profound nature of the more-than-human.
