"A beautiful, absorbing, tragic book. . . . Rebecca Solnit tells this story with the passion and clarity it deserves."Larry McMurtry
The product of a stunningly original and expansive imagination. Savage Dreams ties together the histories of Yosemite National Park and the Nevada Test Site to illuminate the political stakes of how we think about, and act upon, the landscape. "SF Weekly"
"Savage Dreams summons us to the campfires of resistance."Mike Davis, author of City of Quartz
"Savage Dreams is about many things: despoliation and restoration, finding a voice between contemporary noise and silence, making friends and enemies. Most of all, though, it may be about a journey into history: about how understanding history and making it are not really very different."Greil Marcus, author of Lipstick Traces
"A wonderful and important book, weaving past and present, politics and spirituality, land and history, pleasure and outrage, esthetics and activism, into a map where we as Americans find ourselves today. Intellectually challenging but beautifully written and eminently readable, Savage Dreams has both heart and teeth." Lucy Lippard, author of Overlay: Contemporary Art and the Art of Prehistory"show more
