HOME GROUND (Signed) Language for an American Landscape (Signed)

Lopez, Barry (Edit.). Gwartney, Debra (Managing Edit.)

San Antonio: Trinity, 2006. Book. As New. Hardcover.. Signed by Author(s). First Edition. 1st printing. 4to cloth. 449pp. Illustrated with drawings. "Index of Terms." "Index of Names." "The Writers." Signed by both Lopez & Gwartney. The noted editors secured approximately 45 writers, many equally noted, to each write several descriptions & definitions of landscape terms they were familiar with both common & uncommon to the American West. A smidgen of a sample: Jon Krakauer wrote the entry on "cornice", Luis Alberto Urrea on "hondo", Terry Tempest Williams on "natural bridge", Joy Williams on "starved basin", Barbara Kingsolver on "placer deposit", Barry Lopez on "pitch", William Kittredge on "pass", Charles Frazier on "seep", Susan Morrow on "trembling prairie." You get the "drift" (Larry Woiwode wrote that one!). A book to take down from your "shelf" (Donna Seaman wrote that one!). Sure to be a classic of Western literature. Fine, as new in dj..
