"Barry Lopez carries the reader from desert to prairie, from countryside to city streets, in pursuit of the urgent experiences that come with the questioning life. These stories follow a determined explorer’s search for a vanished river in Nebraska; convey the strange death song of a doomed white buffalo herd; and share a mystic’s vision of the universe, revealed in a whirling pattern of levitating stones. Whether describing a life-changing encounter on an empty Caribbean beach or an unexpected wonder on a snowy New York evening, Winter Count is an affecting and enduring collection that will stay with the reader long after the final page."-- Adapted from Amazon.com

USA-specific. Flowery language, history stories.

Good writing, I read, then reread it immediately, just to savor the stories and the art that went into creating this book
