Travels & Encounters From Around the World, a Nature & Memoir Book Talk & Signing
Barry Lopez is the National Book Award-winning author of the now-classic Arctic Dreams, along with several other collections of essays and short stories. He contributes regularly to both American and foreign journals and has traveled to more than 70 countries to conduct research. Lopez will discuss and sign Horizon ($30.00 Knopf), a vivid, poetic, capacious work that recollects the travels around the world and the encounters--human, animal, and natural--that have shaped an extraordinary life.
In Horizon, Lopez gives us his most far-ranging yet personal work to date, in a book that moves indelibly, immersively, through his travels to six regions of the world: from Western Oregon to the High Arctic; from the Galápagos to the Kenyan desert; from Botany Bay in Australia to finally, unforgettably, the ice shelves of Antarctica. This is a revelatory, epic work that voices concern and frustration along with humanity and hope--a book that makes you see the world differently, and that is the crowning achievement by one of America's great thinkers and most humane voices.
