Signed by Bowden on the title page. Emerson Trout is quoted on the dust jacket as saying, "I flinch at calling Charles Bowden a nature writer, a conservationist, an ecologist. As a writer he is so much more than the sum of his titles. His prose trembles with a raw and vital energy that I find missing from much current writing about the vital questions of wildness and wilderness."
