Publisher's Summary

National Book Award winner Barry Lopez treks through the American Southwest and Alaska, discovering new meanings in both the world of nature - geese flying, wolf tracks - and the world of humans - artifacts of lost cultures. The land and humans, he believes, share a strong spiritual bond that echoes and impacts the universe's great rhythm of life.Elegantly told against a haunting melodic backdrop, Crossing Open Ground's brilliant descriptions will sweep you into a new perspective - the land both gives us strength and molds our souls. Perceptive and poetic, these essays chart a course vital to our sense of place, to our well-being and to our survival.
