It's hard to classify this wide-ranging book. Williams moves between her mother and grandmother's deaths to cancer, the aboveground nuclear testing during the WW II and Cold War years, her Mormon roots, her love for the desert, and the natural disaster of the rise in the level of the Great Salt Lake which devastates the wildlife refuge where she works and the animals it shelters. That she can move from subject to subject without any sense of jarring is a tribute to her beautiful writing and her own sense of the interconnectedness of all things. Highly recommended.

Terry Tempest Williams, a naturalist who lives and works near the Great Salt Lake in Utah, analyses and interweaves the themes in her life: her relationship with nature, her Mormon roots, and the trauma she experienced at losing her mother and grandmother to cancer.
