New. No remainder marks. Top jacket edges lightly bumped. ; 1.11 x 8.51 x 5.83 Inches; 312 pages; Here is a stunning new memoir from one of the West's strongest women writers.  In This We Are Native couples a passionate argument for saving wilderness with a breathtaking memoir of love and loss and rebirth. Smith unflinchingly tells of her young husband's final year (his death left her with four sons to raise alone); of her father's final months and days, decades later, and the familiar chasm of death's approach; and of mourning the beloved landscape she has chosen as home, Montana's Blackfoot River Valley, with its unsurpassable beauty and unbearable fragility, when it is brutally clear-cut by big lumber.

But it is Smith's gift that In This We Are Native is a glorious celebration of life, transcending grief in language exacting and unsentimental. "Here is a woman to admire and love . . ." Annie Dillard wrote of Homestead.  In a voice clear and true, Smith regales the joys of huckleberry gathering; the stealth of the mountain lion; the rejuvenation in an icy mountain river; and the immense satisfaction of intimacy with wildlands. She rejoices in the preciousness of lovers and family; the deep satisfaction of growing old in a place you love; and the pleasures of adventure abroad.  .
