Childs answers the call of fierce places; the more desolate the landscape, the more passionately he is drawn to it. For Childs, these are the types of terrain that sharpen the senses, and demand a physicality the modern civilized world no longer requires. Includes black-and-white photos and pen-and-ink drawings by the author.

About the Author:

Craig Childs--naturalist, adventurer, desert ecologist, and freqent contributor to National Public Radio's Morning Edition--lives in Crawford, Colorado. His previous books include The Secret Knowledge of Water and Crossing Paths.

From Booklist:

From the labyrinthine slot canyons of Utah to the deserted island beaches in the Sea of Cortes, the arid lands of the Southwest speak to the acclaimed naturalist Childs. Possessing an extraordinary sense of harmony with these forbidding landscapes, Childs translates their primal voices into a taut and unsentimental narrative of exploration. Step by arduous step, readers follow Childs into the desert's severe mysteries, penetrating deep into regions once home to the cliff dwellers of Salado pre-history and the giants of Seri legend. His intrepid fellow adventurers--a maverick mathematician, a traumatized social worker, a pagan mechanic--mirror Craig's own fierce ardor for stark beauty and fearful silence. Like the ancient ones who inscribed the cliffs with enigmatic spirals, these modern invaders of the dry wilderness probe insatiably into its hidden secrets, fighting their way up sheer cliffs, enduring the unexpected snowstorm, crawling through treacherous mazes. But ultimately all merely human strivings yield to the stark monoliths, the startling waterfalls, and the bleak crevices of a timeless land that embraces and then overshadows all who fall under its spell.

Includes black-and-white photographs and pen-and-ink drawings by the authorIn Soul of Nowhere, Craig Childs answers the call of fierce places; the more desolate the landscape, the more passionately he is drawn to it. An intrepid adventurer, Childs tracks a broad territory: the Sierra Madre Mountains in northern Mexico, the canyons of Utah, the White Mountain Apache Reservation, a deserted island in the Sea of Cortez. For Childs, these are the types of terrain that sharpen the senses, that demand a physicality the modern civilized world no longer requires. Discovering the artifacts of ancient peoples, he muses about the meaning and mystery of the lives they led. In his extraordinary nomadic treks, he finds the land animated and himself enlivened. Childs's obvious love for seemingly inhospitable places redeems them for armchair travelers and outdoor adventurers alike. Seller Inventory # APC9780316735889
