Not since Edward Abbey has one writer spoken so passionately about the desert places of the American West as has Terry Tempest Williams. In this first book of criticism to address the work of one of the West’s finest daughters, Katherine Chandler and Melissa Goldthwaite collect the work of sixteen respected scholars who each examine some aspect of courage, wisdom, or place in Williams’s work, in an attempt to "get behind the heart" of her literary vision.

About the Author:

Katherine R. Chandler is assistant professor of English at St. Mary's College of Maryland.

Melissa A. Goldthwaite is assistant professor of English at Saint Joseph's University, Philadelphia

Review:

"A gathering of skilled critical essays on the work of one of our generations most valued writers; it is keen and perceptive, and rich in understanding... These essays illuminate the core themes of Williams’s writing—an extraordinary reading of place, superb storytelling, deeply-rooted sense of family, skilled observations as a natural history writer—and will add to the enjoyment of those of us who cherish and respect her writing, as well as to those students for whom her work is a beacon."—Ann Zwinger, author of The Nearsighted Naturalist



"This is an excellent collection of essays which would be of value to scholars interested in ecofeminist writing, nature writing, memoir and autobiography, cancer narratives, and creative writing. It could be used for personal edification as well as pedagogical purposes, and can stand proudly as the first collection of critical essays on the oeurve of Terry Tempest Williams."―Rocky Mountain Review

"Richly engaging and provocative."―CHOICE

"Moves the terms of scholarly debate in literature and environment forward. The book's lucid, well-argued essays represent a range of sophisticated analysis."―ISLE: Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and Environment
