Field Notes completes Barry Lopez’s trilogy that includes Desert Notes and River Notes. In these fictional stories, Lopez’s characters must rediscover the wisdom and spiritual strength found in nature. Many of Lopez’s vignettes are mystical and magical—a reckless desert sojourner is saved by birds; a botanist is led back to his family by wildflowers; a hunter is given a trapping lesson by wolverines.

Field Notes once again proves that Barry Lopez has a special talent for presenting the natural world as a responsive, emotional being and a sacred place—offering those attuned to its tempo the grace and hope needed to carry on.
