Praise

“Delightful. . . . An immensely readable, personal, questioning, informative book.” –Journal of the John Muir Trust

“An eloquent story of deep ties to true landscapes and the ways we bless and mark them.” –Ellen Meloy, author of Anthropology of Turquoise

“John Simpson has taken the concept of place and turned it inside out and upside down and backwards. A thorough, intriguing read.” —John Hanson Mitchell, author of Walking Towards Walden and Following the Sun

“A ruminative walk across the two regions that together created a man who helped create the modern United States…. With grace and tact [Simpson] introduces us to the people who live their now—their work, their dreams, their fears, their character.” —Preservation Magazine
