Summary
  • In these new essays, Williams explores the concept of erosion: of the land, of the self, of belief, of fear. She wrangles with the paradox of desert lands and the truth of erosion: What is weathered, worn, and whittled away through wind, water, and time is as powerful as what remains
  • We know of the elements of erosion: wind, water, and time. In these essays Williams explores the erosion we face in daily life: erosions of democracy, science, compassion, and trust. The erosion of desert lands exposes the truth of change. As a defender of the environment, she reminds us that beauty is its own form of resistance, and that water can crack a stone. -- adapted from jacket
