From the Publisher:
Kittredge relates his coming of age on a property his family transformed from a farm dependent on horses to a modern agribusiness. Painfully reflecting on the abandonment of old ways, Kittredge calls for new, radical stories about the West that will foster compassion and caretaking.A portrait of the author and bibliography of his works accompany six essays, including "Child in the garden," "Learning to think," "Rediscovering home," and "The politics of storytelling"
Annotation:
The author of this meditation on writing and the land is well-poised to discuss his subjects. Born into a ranching family, he plied the family trade for years before becoming a writer and professor. Here he recalls the mistakes he made as a young rancher (damaging the land for short-term profit, killing off nuisance animals), seeing them as reflecting a larger problem endemic to the region. For Kittredge, getting beyond his resource-extraction mentality and becoming a writer were intertwined, and he explains here how developing an ethic of exploration and thoughtfulness in his writing led to a more mindful attitude toward the land.
