Editorial Reviews

Review

"David Roberts has long been one of our most thoughtful and adventurous scribes of the American outback and, with The Bears Ears, he’s written a love song, bold and stirring and plangent, to what just might be our continent’s most spellbinding wilderness."
Hampton Sides, author of Blood and Thunder and In the Kingdom of Ice

"
The Bears Ears is a book as evocative and fascinating as the land it describes. For most of his life, David Roberts has been exploring the magical landscape surrounding the Bears Ears in Utah. He’s gathered his experiences and knowledge into this eloquent book, creating an elegiac portrait of the most threatened wilderness in America. This is a must-read for anyone who treasures the red-rock landscapes of Utah and the many extraordinary ruins hidden there. I highly, highly recommend this book!"
Douglas Preston, #1 best-selling author of The Lost City of the Monkey God

"A fascinating account of the human history of the Bears Ears, a remote wilderness in the southeastern corner of Utah. This book is a paean from David Roberts to the Bears Ears country, his ‘favorite place on earth.’ His stories will win you to his wilderness―even from your armchair."
Stephen Lekson, professor of anthropology, University of Colorado, Boulder

"David Roberts weaves together history, archaeology, and his personal experiences to reveal the fabric of Bears Ears National Monument. Stories dwell in every canyon and alcove, and Roberts reads this majestic landscape with the practiced eye of a skilled guide. If you want to know the histories embedded in this highly contested monument, this is a must-read."
Matthew Liebmann, Peabody Professor of American Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University

"A masterfully rendered portrait of Bears Ears as an endangered land worth celebrating and protecting."
Publishers Weekly

"Roberts’ latest combines research, journalism, and memoir in a satisfying whole that will please fans of his earlier books of both travel in wild places and key moments in Native American history. [It is] at the top of the half-dozen books recently published on Bears Ears and a pleasure for travelers in the Southwest."
Kirkus

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

David Roberts (born 1943) is a climber, mountaineer, and author of books and articles about climbing. He is particularly noted for his books The Mountain of My Fear and Deborah: A Wilderness Narrative, chronicling major ascents in Alaska in the 1960s, which had a major impact on the form of mountaineering literature. In thirteen seasons spent in the Alaskan wilderness, Roberts is well known for many first ascents, including the Wickersham Wall on Mount McKinley, the West rib of Mount Huntington, climbing in the Western Brooks Range and the Kichatna Spires, and on the East Face of Mount Dickey.

Roberts is the son of Walter Orr Roberts and mentor to Jon Krakauer.

David Roberts attended Harvard University, where he received a mathematics degree in 1965. He was a member of and former president of the Harvard Mountaineering Club. He also received a Ph.D. in English from the University of Denver in 1970.

From 1970 to 1979 Roberts was a professor of literature at Hampshire College, in Amherst, Massachusetts, as well as designing the college's Outdoors Program.
