Publisher Comments:

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the greatest modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions.

“Lopez has such great narrative skill and uses his words so carefully the simple intensity is often nearly overwhelming.” —The Oregonian

Barry Lopez is an unparalleled explorer of the relationship between humanity and nature, one he limns in prose as beautiful as it is economical. His essays and short fiction have appeared everywhere from Outside to Harpers and The Paris Review. He is the winner of a 1986 National Book Award for his bestselling Arctic Dreams.

Vintage Lopez is divided into two parts, nonfiction and fiction. It includes “Landscape and Narrative” ; the prologue to Arctic Dreams; and such classic short stories “The Entreaty of the Wiideema” and “The Mappist.”

Also included, for the first time in book form, the essay “The Naturalist.”

Review:

"Lopez has such great narrative skill and uses his words so carefully the simple intensity is often nearly overwhelming." The Oregonian (Portland, OR)

Synopsis:

The full range of National Book Award-winner Barry Lopez's talents, in both fiction and nonfiction, and in his poetic evocations of nature, shine in the Prologue from Arctic Dreams; in seven short stories; and in the essays "Landscape and Narrative," "The American Geographies," "Flight," "Learning to See," and, for the first time in book form, "The Naturalist."
