   schema:description ""Author and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams argues that a lack of connection to the land is the direct result of our failure to care intimately about one another. From Pieces of White Shell: A Journey to Navajoland (1984) to When Women Were Birds: Fifty-Four Variations on Voice (2012), her writing is born in the red-hot fires of contradiction. A Mormon and a believer in the power of women, an activist and a solitary writer, a student of science and a woman of faith, Williams celebrates paradox and lives both on the page and in the world. The first monograph to explore Williams's impressive and expanding literary canon, The Redemption of Narrative: Terry Tempest Williams and Her Vision of the West is divided into two sections. Part 1 compares Williams and poet and essayist Thomas Stearns Eliot, who share a personal belief system and a longing to find order and stability through language. Part 2 explores two of the literary communities to which Williams belongs, first, writers of creative nonfiction and literary journalism, and second, animal activists who advocate both for living things and for the planet that sustains them"--"@en ;
