In Home Ground: Language for an American Landscape, editor Barry Lopez calls upon contributors such as Barbara Kingsolver, Charles Frazier, Jon Krakauer, Robert Hass, William DeBuys and Arthur Sze to define over 850 evocative terms used to describe the American landscape. The entries are intriguing pieces of creative writing that not only define a word, but create images of our landscape and its diversity.
Join award-winning writer William DeBuys and internationally known poet Arthur Sze for their discussion of this masterful work on language, geography, and folklore.
