520 2  "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 literary 
       celebration of our national parks, what they mean to us, 
       and what we mean to them.Through twelve carefully chosen 
       parks, from Yellowstone in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine to 
       Big Bend in Texas, 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. Beautifully illustrated, with 
       evocative black-and-white images by some of our finest 
       photographers, from Lee Friedlander to Sally Mann to 
       Sebasti√£o Salgado, The Hour of Land will be a collector's 
       item as well as a seminal work of environmental writing 
       and criticism about some of America's most treasured 
       landmarks"--|cProvided by publisher.
