Booked at the Baker Village Books Presents:

Terry Tempest Williams, Author of The Hour of Land

For years, America’s national parks have provided public breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing, which is why close to 300 million people visit the parks each year. Now, to honor the centennial of the National Park Service, Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the beloved memoir When Women Were Birds, returns with The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks, a literary celebration of our national parks, what they mean to us, and what we mean to them. Through twelve carefully chosen parks, Tempest Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making. Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, The Hour of Land is a meditation and manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America. Our national parks stand at the intersection of humanity and wildness, and there’s no one better than Tempest Williams to guide us there.

Terry Tempest Williams is the award-winning author of fourteen books, including Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and PlaceFinding Beauty in a Broken World, and When Women Were Birds. Her work has been widely anthologized around the world. She divides her time between Castle Valley, Utah, and Moose, Wyoming.
