Here, for the first time in one volume, are two of Lopez's masterpieces, "River Notes and "Desert Notes. From the thundering power of the river's swift current, to the stillness of clear freshwater pools; to desert springs, birds and wind, and rattlesnakes . . . and the terrible intrusion of man, Lopez allows us to share moments of intense personal experience as man tries to come to terms with the Earth's landscape, and with his own existence.

This is my very favorite book of all time. No other book has ever managed to speak to me like this book does. It takes me months to read it, because I have to pause and savor every single story in it. If I had only one book to take to a desert island, this would be the one, hands down. Read full review
