In this collection of meditative essays, poet and essayist Saner explores the significance of the open spaces of the West for Americans. Typically, he expands a core experience or place--dawn in Colorado's Indian Peaks, for instance--to incorporate scenes or ideas from other places and other times. The sight of an autumn-plump marmot basking in the sunshine brings to mind an equally plump Pliny the Elder, writing in long-ago Rome about this endearing animal. The fate of the beautiful Swiss Alps, engineered, mechanized, and dominated by tourism, serve to warn us of the threat to the "empty plenitude" of our great American West under the pressure of people, pollution, and negligence toward the sacred space of Earth. Recommended for literary and natural history collections in academic libraries and to libraries serving the Western states.
