I reviewed Barry Lopez’s latest book, HORIZON, at NPR.org.

A Barry Lopez book is never a quick read: “Each place on Earth goes deep.”

Of course, deftly sketched landscapes are one of his chief delights — and Horizon, suspended halfway between travelogue and memoir, offers plenty of them. But Lopez — who often chronicles himself wandering from one landscape to another, or away from the group he’s journeying with, or away from the initial reason for coming to a place — wants us, above all else, to consider. To find context and connections. To think about where to go from here. To take our time.

Whatever time is left.
