Description

Brief Description

The Place Within is a time capsule in words by some of our most distinguished writers. These portraits about the places in our country's diverse landscape range from the hummingbirds of Montana to the neon lights of Time Square, the brush fires of Alaska to the Grand Canyon's silend grandeur. Finally, NASA astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman lifts us up above America into space, where he looks down upon the country in all its vast and yet poignantly fragile entirety.

Learn More about the Book

These writers, in voices ranging from the lyrical to the meditative, awaken or allow us to discover anew a feeling for what we call America in all its many faces. Here you'll find the American spirit in Phillip Lopate's gridlocked "Manhattan," in Richard Rodriguez's gay San Francisco, and in Gerald Early's uneasily "integrated" St. Louis. In her moving essay on South Dakota, Kathleen Norris reflects on the way objects change our experience of space. Gretel Ehrlich's essay on Wyoming is also about a cure for human grief. As a whole, these intimate portraits celebrate a sense of place, rural and urban, gritty and placid; and they show how landscape transforms us, becomes a place within.
