A scientist sees wild animals in empty urban spaces . . . A gravely ill woman weaves her desires into luminous cloth . . . An anthropologist seeks redemption in the bush, but is thwarted by an aboriginal people's indifference to natural violence. In twelve transcendent and affecting short fictions, National Book Award-winning author Barry Lopez demonstrates once again his respect for disparate ways of knowing and being, and his sense of the magic and marvelous strangeness of the real world.
