The North Dakota Quarterly has published a review by James Ballowe of my Yosemite book. From the review:
“The practical lessons that complement the personal story will make Mountains of Life a useful companion for the solitary camper and hiker in Yosemite. But above all, Liebenow’s record of the lore, natural history, and lessons to be learned from Yosemite will be of interest even to the reader who may never have the chance to experience its grandeur in person.”
Elsewhere in the review, Ballowe writes that the book reminds readers of nature’s power to create a sense of awe and humility, and says my writing is in the tradition of natural historians like Muir and Thoreau.
