Abstract

From the Oregon coast to the steppes of Mongolia, the seven short stories in this collection take the reader on a journey through the landscape of human experience. In the high desert of southeast Idaho, a mammalogist confronts his own predatory instincts. A sister laments the distance between herself and a brother studying climate change in Antarctica. A caregiver for an aging botanist learns the value of forgiveness. Love, loss and redemption--the relationships that define our lives--are here juxtaposed with the beauty and implacability of the natural world.
