Abstract:

Trespass is the story of one woman's struggle to gain footing in inhospitable territory. A wilderness activist and jack Mormon, Amy Irvine sought respite in the desert outback of southern Utah's red-rock country after her father's suicide, only to find herself an interloper among her own people. More than simply an exploration of personal loss, Trespass is an elegy for a dying world, for the ruin of one of our most beloved and unique desert landscapes and for our vanishing connection to it. Fearing what her father's fate might somehow portend for her, Irvine retreated into the remote Colorado Plateau--home to a rugged brand of cowboy Mormonism that stands in defiant contrast to the world at large. Her story is one of ruin and restoration, of learning to live among people who fear the wilderness the way they fear the devil and how that fear fuels a pervasive antagonism toward environmental concerns.--From publisher description.
