    " Soul-candy. Particularly, the essay "A Presentation of Whales." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arne | 1/30/2010

    " A Presentation of Whales resonates with the same haunting, abject quality as Orwell's To Kill an Elephant (think that's the name). "

    " Just what I need right now. "

    " Lopez is a fine writer with an astute eye and ear for the world around us-- and how we often both relate and fail to see it. "Landscape and Narrative," an often anthologized essay, stands out as a particularly insightful look into the story of landscape. "

    " Barry Lopez is just such a great writer. He lost me a bit when he forays into the theoretical but luckily that doesn't happen too often. "

    " tangible mixture of natural and political history interwoven with personal experience.

    " Not as compelling as 'Arctic Dreams,' Lopez' writing nevertheless feels sacramental to me. The care and intention of his writing is exceptional and rare. The rating of this book is likely to go up. "
