Now in paperback, this work by the author of "Refuge" explores the landscape of Hieronymus Bosch's enigmatic 15th century Flemish masterpiece, "The Garden of Delights".
From the Publisher:
With Leap, Terry Tempest Williams, award-winning author of Refuge, offers a sustained meditation on passion, faith, and creativity-based upon her transcendental encounter with Hieronymus Bosch's medieval masterpiece The Garden of Delights.

Williams examines this vibrant landscape with unprecedented acuity, recognizing parallels between the artist's prophetic vision and her own personal experiences as a Mormon and a naturalist. Searing in its spiritual, intellectual, and emotional courage, Williams's divine journey enables her to realize the full extent of her faith and through her exquisite imagination opens our eyes to the splendor of the world.
The author explores the beautiful, enigmatic landscape created by Hieronymus Bosch in "The Garden of Delights," in a study that uncovers the spiritual and personal links between the great masterpiece and her own life.
Annotation:
Acclaimed naturalist Williams centers her memoir of faith and creativity around the 15th-century GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS by Hieronymus Bosch, two-thirds of which hung over her bed as a child to remind her of the reality of paradise and hell. As an adult, Williams examines her continuing fascination with the painting as well as her continuing struggles with the faith that both introduced her to the painting and suppressed the one-third of it that represented erotic earthly existence.
