Summary
A gardener finds love recultivating his soul; a reminiscing horse thief awaits retribution; a wayward stepson rediscovers his father in rows of filbert trees. In his first new work of fiction since Field Notes (1994), Barry Lopez embraces fable, historical fiction, and contemporary social realism in these spellbinding stories, all informed by his deep spiritual connection to the natural world. "In the Garden of the Lords of War," "The Deaf Girl," "Mornings in Quarain," "The Letters of Heaven," "The Construction of the Rachel," "Light Action in the Caribbean"& hese are the works of a master at the top of his form. As always, Lopez's stories transcend his subjects, linking human culture and landscape, poetry and philosophy, emotion and the earth's mysteries. As one reviewer observed, he speaks to "the inquisitiveness of our souls." He defines himself as "a writer who travels"; his writing--erudite, intimate, and lyrical--enriches our lives.Some of these stories first appeared in American Short Fiction and Manoa: most are making their debut in Light Action in the Caribbean
