Through the grace of her stories we come to see how a lack of intimacy with the natural world has initiated a lack of intimacy with each other. Williams shadows lions on the Serengeti and spots night herons in the Bronx.

Williams' previous books — Pieces of White Shell: A Journey to Navajo- land;
Coyote's Canyon; Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place; and An
Unspoken Hunger — progressively explore her spiritual connections to the land
and her maturing perspective on effective activism fueled by a passionate
commitment to place. In her essay "The Wild Card," included in An Unspoken
Hunger, Williams writes: "It just may be that the most radical act we can commit is
to stay home.

Terry Tempest Williams inherits this tradition of ecobiography from Abbey and
further defines it in her Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place, an
example of unabashedly autobiographical nature writing. I choose Williams's text
as exemplary of this genre because of its connection to Abbey's and because of
its similarity to other contemporary ecobiographies cited throughout this
sourcebook, especially Kathleen Norris's Dakota and Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at
Tinker Creek.

Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place established her voice. Refuge,
from which these essays come, mourns the parallel losses of Williams's mother to
ovarian cancer, the deaths of both her grandmothers, and the drowning of
Williams's spiritual homeland, Bear River Bird Refuge, by the rising Great Salt
Lake. She likens the alternating natural history/family structure of the book to
breathing: "One informs the other; there is no separation." She says the same
about her life.
