Eating Stone PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Eating Stone free pdf Long believed to be disappearing and possibly even extinct, the Southwestern bighorn sheep of Utah's canyonlands have made a surprising comeback. Naturalist Ellen Meloy tracks a band of these majestic creatures through backcountry hikes, downriver floats, and travels across the Southwest. Alone in the wilderness, Meloy chronicles her communion with the bighorns and laments the growing severance of man from nature, a severance that she feels has left us spiritually hungry. Wry, quirky and perceptive, "Eating Stone" is a brillant and wholly original tribute to the natural world.

About Ellen Meloy

A recipient of a Whiting Foundation Award in 1997, Ellen Meloy was a native of the West and lived in California, Montana, and Utah. Her previous book, "The Anthropology of Turquoise," was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and won the Utah Book Award. Meloy spent most of her life in wild, remote places- at the time of her sudden death in November 2004 she and her husband were living in southern Utah. In her honor, her friends and family founded The Ellen Meloy Fund for Desert Writers, which provides support to writers whose work reflects the spirit and passions of her work.
