The Hour of Land - Terry Tempest Williams

Staff Pick

With the looming devastation of our national treasure, the parks system, this book offers an understanding of their importance to our history and the sanity of our collective respect for the earth. In her reflective and calming voice, Williams offers her thoughts on the parks that have meant the most to her and the great loss from which we'll all be reeling if and when they are degraded. If you find yourself walking through or camping in a national park this summer, Williams will help you see yourself as a part of that landscape. Perhaps only when we again see ourselves as part of the landscape will we see these parks as sacred land worth saving.
