Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

These two volumes from the distinguished essayist Hoagland, both originally published in the early 1970s, cover an impressive range of subjects in the realms of both nature and culture.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From the Back Cover

These fifteen essays, by perhaps our finest personal essayist, range over the widest possible territory - county fairs, rodeos, the circus, boxing, taxidermy, bear hunting, about being a writer, about tugboats, and about the courage of the animal kingdom. They explore compassion, pain, love, and the densely textured spectacle of a world endlessly compelling to its author.And they are brilliant. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 256 pages)
