Author Mary B. Kurtz shares the rich experiences of her Colorado agricultural life in this collection of twenty-nine lyric essays, contributing immeasurably to the tradition of Western American literature. As if looking through the aperture of a microscope with its light-gathering qualities, Kurtz sees a clear and magnified vision of her life on a ranch and writes about its daily rhythms, the murmurings of a natural world, and the vagaries and mysteries of aging and mortality. Rooted in place, it is a tribute to the beauty and power of a Western landscape to hold and inspire one’s daily living.
