A High Uintas Bookshelf

In this column we’ll list 2-4 interesting articles, books or the like that have caught our attention. They aren’t necessarily recent or recently read-- sort of a random compilation. Within a year, hopefully, we’ll have an established and detailed reading list. It won’t be complete without your additions. Please send suggestions and a descriptive sentence or two.

This month's review is by longtime HUPC member Steve Lewis of Salt Lake City.

The Heart of the Sound: An Alaskan Paradise Found and Nearly Lost. Marybeth Holleman. University of Utah Press. 2004.

This poignant and literate text presents a powerful account of the Anchorage author's life in the wake of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. Grounded in her triumphal connection to the natural world of the Prince William Sound, the author diligently probes issues relating to "death of a place" and resulting, personal "shifting baselines." The Heart of the Sound is a sterling tribute and strong voice for wildlife, a vision of passionate human advocacy, and certainly "worth the trees" on which itís printed.
