Van Dyke È 1 CHARACTERS Es These books map the intimate connections between the human and the natural world Literary naturalists transcend political boundaries social concerns and historica. John Van Dyke s book is THE seminal book on desert writing He is specifically talking mostly about the Mojave Colorado and Sonoran deserts his observations can be applied to most deserts around the world He is by profession an art critic and brings that critical eye to the experience of being in and traveling through the desert This is the second time I ve read this book revisiting it after a couple of decades and am still amazed at the power it has It is referenced in other desert writers like Edward Abbey and Joseph Wood Krutch I recommend The Desert to anyone who loved arid lands but also to those who are seeking a new way of viewing things
