Moving from fable and historical fiction to contemporary realism, this book of stories from Barry Lopez is erotic and wise, full of irresistible characters doing things they shouldn’t do for reasons that are mysterious and irreducible. These are the works of a master at the top of his form. As always, Lopez’s stories transcend his subjects, linking human culture and landscape, poetry and philosophy, emotion and the earth’s mysteries.

Eight of the print edition’s thirteen stories are included here:

  • Remembering Orchards
  • The Letters of Heaven
  • Emory Bear Hands’ Birds
  • Mornings in Quarain
  • Light Action in the Caribbean
  • The Deaf Girl
  • The Mappist
  • Stolen Horses

    " Great selection of short stories by Lopez. The best one is the last in the book, The Mappist. "

    " Perfection. These are amaising short stories, perfection of the medium. What a pleasure to be transported to Barry Lopez land where there are acres of land between words. He's a craftsman. The stories are not so much read as collected. Read read read this book but you can't have mine. "
