    Terry Tempest Williams's mother told her: "I am leaving you all my journals, but you must promise me you won't look at them until after I'm gone." Fans of Williams's iconic and unconventional memoir, Refuge, well remember that mother. She was a member of a large Mormon clan in northern Utah who developed cancer as a result of the nuclear testing in nearby Nevada. It was a shock to Williams that her mother had kept journals. But not as much of a shock as what she found when the time came to read them.

    E says: "Amazing Story, Amazing Voice"

    Story
    What did you love best about When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice?

    Vast and yet compact story of a Utah naturalist who writes like a poet.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The writer, storyteller and narrator--all Terry Tempest Williams--shares that world of birds and wilderness. And humanity's place within this realm.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The entire book is indivisible. The entire book is compelling, written graciously though at times irascible--cranky even while still engaging.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I realized at the end of this book that I would love to read it again.


    Any additional comments?

    Have already secured copies as gifts for friends.
