Praise

“Piercingly beautiful. . . . Its chapters map a vibrant, curious mind in love with the particulars of the Southwest landscape.” –The New York Times Book Review“One of our finest natural-history writers. . . . Her own knowledge of the natural world is deep, her prose breathtakingly beautiful and often startling.” –Annie Proulx, Globe & Mail“A major contribution to an understanding of the land. . . . Meloy’s genius seems evident on every page of this thoughtful, impressionistic book.”–Deseret News “One of the American West’s greatest contemporary naturalists. . . . More than a mere adventure, Eating Stone concludes Meloy’s love affair with the western desert and the wildlife it nourishes.”–Outside MagazineBeautiful. . . . Not since Peter Matthiessen’s The Snow Leopard has an author transported us so completely into the wilderness.”–The Plain Dealer
