Book Description: FABER FABER, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 197 x 127 mm. Brand New Book. In this collection of essays, the author of High Tide in Tucson brings to us (out of one of history s darker moments) an extended love song to the world we still have. From its opening parable gleaned from recent news about a lost child saved in an astonishing way, the book moves on to consider a world of surprising and hopeful prospects ranging from an inventive conservation scheme in a remote jungle to the backyard flock of chickens tended by the author s small daughter. Whether she is contemplating the Grand Canyon, her vegetable garden, motherhood, adolescence, genetic engineering, TV-watching, the history of civil rights, or the future of a nation founded on the best of all human impulses, these essays are grounded in the author s belief that our largest problems have grown from the earth s remotest corners as well as our own backyards, and that answers may lie in those places, too. In the voice Kingsolver s readers have come to rely on - sometimes grave, occasionally hilarious, and ultimately persuasive - Small Wonder is a hopeful examination of the people we seem to be, and what we might yet make of ourselves.
