Rawlins writes for Sierra magazine and is also the author of a book of poetry, A Ceremony on Bare Ground (Utah State Univ. Pr., 1985. o.p.). He also works for the Forest Service and, among other tasks, periodically hikes or skis into remote areas of the Wind River wilderness to collect samples of snow and water in order to check for evidence of acid rain. He responds to the mountains as a poet first, then as a scientist. This, then, is a poet/hydrologist's thoughtful reaction to wilderness, environmental in the sense of being awed by place, fauna, and flora but not by nature as a mystical experience. Whether as guide, storyteller, geologist, historian, or keen observer of the seasons, he shows in his mundane activities the value of the wilderness. Readers will be persuaded by his tale and delighted by his company. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.
