1. I liked the courage of your anti-supernatural stance – something I share. Often this is done in a more mealy mouthed way.
2. I was interested in your take on Muir vs. Burroughs. Both approaches are needed, but I think I share your attitude of leaning a bit more in the directions of Burroughs. The attachment to local environments is not as forefront as it should be. As you are aware I work a bit at photo-images, and although the iconic famous images of places are all well and good, I find it difficult to show the story of a place without fairly intimate knowledge of the area, one needs to embed to really get the feel of a place. An iconic image of El Capitain is nice, but it doesn’t tell the whole story.
3. I don’t have access to the expanse of personal history that you do, but nevertheless your recollections concerning your family, your grand father, etc. reminded me in many ways of time I spent as a youngster with some of my father’s relatives in Michigan in the summer. Much the same sorts of feelings as you convey in the book.
4. You have a refreshing command of the language, which I am not sure I noticed as much in your other books I have read, but it struck me strongly in this one. It is insightful without being preachy, generally pitch perfect, modest and playful, thoughtful always with an eye to human fallibility. Sans pomposity. A talent which I sorely lack.
Overall a very nice job. You should be pleased, as I suspect you are. I hope it sells well and makes you beaucoup bucks.
