Praise

Praise for Gretel Ehrlich and The Solace of Open Spaces:

“Any one of [its 12 chapters] stands beautifully on its own . . . She brings the long vistas into focus with the poise of an Ansel Adams.” The New York Times Book Review

“A stunning rumination on life on Wyoming’s High Plains . . . Ehrlich’s gorgeous prose is as expansive as a Wyoming vista, as charged as a bolt of prairie lightning.” Newsday 

“Ehrlich’s best prose belongs in a league with Annie Dillard and even Thoreau. The Solace of Open Spaces releases the bracing air of the wilderness into the stuffy, heated confines of winter in civilization.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Ehrlich [is] a gifted essayist and nature writer.” The Washington Post

“Vivid, tough, and funny . . . an exuberant and powerful book.” —Annie Dillard
