Publisher's Summary

A gardener finds love recultivating his soul; a reminiscing horse thief awaits retribution; a wayward stepson rediscovers his father in rows of filbert trees. Barry Lopez embraces fable, historical fiction, and contemporary social realism in these spellbinding stories, all informed by his deep spiritual connection to the natural world.

Includied in this collection are "In the Garden of the Lords of War", "The Deaf Girl", "Mornings in Quarain", "The Letters of Heaven", "The Construction of the Rachel", "Light Action in the Caribbean"

As always, Lopez's stories transcend his subjects, linking human culture and landscape, poetry and philosophy, emotion and the earth's mysteries. As one reviewer observed, he speaks to "the inquisitiveness of our souls". He defines himself as "a writer who travels"; his writing - erudite, intimate, and lyrical - enriches our lives.

What the Critics Say

"There is enough variety in characters and situations for the book to move beyond the readership for nature-oriented fiction and to establish Lopez in the realm of those who plumb the human heart." (Publishers Weekly)
