In this marvelous debut collection, Carol Creelawn leads us into a magical world, where elephants rule the night, lakes are haunted by singing ghosts, and the simple act of driving a car sparks a moment of keen insight. Creelawn gives us an enticing glimpse of what it’s like to camp out in a Central African jungle, navigate New York’s complicated metropolis, or climb into the thin air of the Andes Mountains.

Throughout it all, her work is illuminated by the clear, bright light and colorful landscapes of the American West, revealing a deep love for the natural world while interpreting the events of everyday life with honesty and empathy.
