About the Book

A haunting collection of essays braiding history and memoir with environmentalism. In writing that is deeply attentive to all that’s around, Sullivan leads readers to the questions that persist throughout a life: who to love, how to love, how to be independent and yet h also care for others. The land reminds us that we are not in charge. We are only a part of this world, and privileged to be here.
