Price: $17.95

Ghost Road Press,2006.
Poet and naturalist Karen Chamberlain intertwines years of history and her own experience while isolated on an ranch oasis in the Utah desert. Her reflective and accessible prose discerns the inner mirages of fear and loneliness, while realizing the lush peace afforded by solitude. These candid essays, including excerpts from her journal, offer a gritty and realistic journey into the dependent entities of place and self, beckoning readers to uncover their own ideas about youth, individuality, and nature.
