Known as an advocate for the endangered earth, Barry Lopez is one of Americaa€™s preeminent writers on nature. This invigorating book invites readers to sit down with Lopez and his friend William E. Tydeman to engage with their conversations about activism, the life of the mind, and all things literary. Even readers who think they know everything there is to know about Lopez will learn much from this richly informative book, both from Tydemana€™s concise biography of Lopez and from the dialogue about Lopeza€™s ideas and experiences. The three interviews and Tydemana€™s reflections on other discussions with Lopez gathered here address nature, human beingsa€™ relationship to the land, the tension between political activism and the life of the intellectual, memory and reconciliation, the artista€™s social responsibility, and the business of authorship. qWhat is the nature of the relationship between the writer and the reader?q Lopez asks. It's qreciprocal, contractual, and moral.q Lopeza€™s thoughts on the importance of authenticity will resonate with every reader or writer, as will his deep commitment to story in all his work.
