Read full description of the books:
In About This Life. Barry Lopez takes us on a literal and figurative journey across the terrain of autobiography, assembling essays of wisdom and insight. Here is far flung travel (the beauty of remote Hokkaido Island, the over-explored Galapagos, enigmatic Bonaire); a naturalist's contention (Why does our society inevitably strip political power from people with intimate knowledge of the land - small-scale farmers. Native Americans, Eskimos, cowboys?); and pure adventure (a dizzying series of around-the-world journeys with air freight - everything from penguins to pianos). And here, too, are seven exquisite memory pieces - hauntingly lyrical yet unsentimental recollections that represent Lopez's most personal work to date, and which will be read as classics of the personal essay for years to come.
