A magnificent collection of short fiction by one of America’s most original and acclaimed literary authors—haunting and beautiful tales of spiritual mystery and earthly truth
Barry Lopez, the National Book Award–winning author of Arctic Dreams, has written eloquently on what it means to be human, taking the demands and gifts of the natural world as a frame and setting for his far-reaching narratives. In this evocative and unforgettable collection of stories, he 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. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barry Lopez including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Nine short sketches, more or less autobiographical, with Lopez (Of Wolves and Men, River Notes) remembering bits of scholarship or personal experience that resonated for him in some quasi-mystical way.
