“At the heart of all [Williams’] work— as a writer, a naturalist, and a crusader for protection of the nation’s wilderness…the common theme is restoration: restoring our connection to the land, to the sacred, and to each other.” —Utne Reader
“Terry Tempest Williams has half-broken my heart with everything she has written.” –Bill McKibben
