Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place

Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place - Terry Tempest Williams

The power of Terry Tempest Williams's story -- the story of a family and landscape wracked by destructive forces -- is somewhat marred by melodramatic, overly serious writing and unreal dialogue (I constantly found myself asking "Who talks like this?"). I wish that I hadn't reread this book, because I liked it better the first time. But despite my complaints, Williams has an important story to tell. This is a book definitely worth your time.
