Quick Overview




For four seasons, author Ellen Meloy kept company with a group of desert bighorn sheep she called the Blue Door Band; Eating Stone: Imagination and the Loss of the Wild is a record of that year, written in Meloy's characteristically graceful and good-natured prose, as 'spirited and intelligent, as vivid and vibrant as the land itself is dry and spare'.
It is an inspired reflection on the bond between wild creatures and the human imagination. Finalist - National Book Critics Circle Award for Non-Fiction.
