About This Life
Journeys on the Threshold of MemoryDownloadable Audiobook - 2007
"[Barry Lopez is] among the greatest 20th century American nature writers." 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, both among critics and his devoted readership. In About This Life he takes us on a literal and figurative journey across the terrain of autobiography, assembling essays of great wisdom, exploring the questions of our age and above all by sharing a new openness about himself. From Japan's beautiful Hokkaido Island, the over explored Galapagos, to embarking on a dizzying series of series of around the-world journeys with air freight; we discover new ways in which to view nature and people from around the world. This is a magical and provocative work by a major American writer at the top of his form.
