About the Author:

Richard Nelson is a cultural anthropologist whose previous books include Shadow of the Hunter, Hunters of the Northern Forest, Hunters of the Northern Ice, Make Prayers to the Raven, and The Island Within, for which he won the John Burroughs Medal for outstanding natural history writing. He is also a winner of the Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction.

From AudioFile:

As Richard Nelson guides us, we enter a wilderness of gulls, fish and deer. Offering the spirituality of Native Americans, he offers no Eden, but a rough actuality of nature and man. Nelson reads flawlessly, but the poetry and drama of his writing are flattened by his Midwestern twang. The author is sincere, but the listener, spoiled by film and television narrators, yearns for deeper emotion and drama. Ultimately, it is the words that beguile. The recording is excellent, and the ambient sounds between passages are alluring. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
