THE HOUR OF LAND A Personal Topography of America's National Parks

by | Read by Terry Tempest Williams

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Terry Tempest Williams's clear voice and straightforward delivery make her remarkable collection of 13 personal essays sound intimate. In this reflective journey, the renowned environmental writer reveals her family history as she explores our nation's parks and monuments. Corresponding with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service, this audiobook takes the listener on vivid adventures that include barely escaping a raging wildfire in Glacier National Park, hearing the Gettysburg story from the Confederate point of view, and appreciating the Rockefeller family's massive land donations--from Maine's Acadia National Park to the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Williams's persuasive narration celebrates the value of preserving both wild and historic places while honoring this most American idea. A.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
