With the publication of his best selling Of Wolves and Men and the astonishing originality of Arctic Dreams, National Book Award winner Barry Lopez established himself as that rare writer whose every book is an event, among both critics and his devoted readers. In his autobiography, the author takes the listener on a literal and figurative journey through essays that provide great wisdom, insights into our times, and a new openness about himself. You'll be taken from Japan's beautiful Hokkaido Island, to the overexplored Galapagos, to around-the-world journeys aboard air freights, discovering new perspectives on nature and humankind along the way.
"[Barry Lopez is] among the greatest 20th century American nature writers." (San Francisco Chronicle)
