In these new essays, Williams explores the concept of erosion: of the land, of the self, of belief, of fear. She wrangles with the paradox of desert lands and the truth of erosion: What is weathered, worn, and whittled away through wind, water, and time is as powerful as what remains.We know of the elements of erosion: wind, water, and time. In these essays Williams explores the erosion we face in daily life: erosions of democracy, science, compassion, and trust. The erosion of desert lands exposes the truth of change. As a defender of the environment, she reminds us that beauty is its own form of resistance, and that water can crack a stone. -- adapted from jacket… (més)

Pretty depressing. Climate change isn’t too cheery, especially in Wyoming. ( )
  Abiquail | Apr 24, 2021 |
“I would like to hear the words "public lands" spoken in every election debate, with candidates holding both government and corporations accountable in their oversight and use. The fact of more than three hundred million visits to our national parks last year tells me I am not alone.”

This is the latest essay collection by TTW, one of our treasured naturalists. This one focuses on “erosion”. The current assaults on our public lands and the erosion of science and environmental concerns. The centerpiece here is the Bear Ears National Monument, which Trump infamously tried to strip of his national monument status, in 2017. This is happening in her home state of Utah. TTW offers such a clear and concise plea, to all Americans: Wake up and pay attention, before these great lands are ravaged. Her books are also wonderful on audio, with the author's own compassionate delivery. ( )

Not an easy collection to process, but it sings with love of an endangered desert landscape, and the frustrations, joys and connections of the fight to prioritize the quality of the landscape that enhances the quality of our life. ( )
