A Field Guide to Getting Lost

A Field Guide to Getting Lost - Rebecca Solnit This isn't a book to hurry through, but a book to savor, think back on, enjoy. Solnit is a word smith, but she uses her craft to create a warm, down-to-earth voice. The essays are all loosely tied around the themes of wandering, distance, loss, yet each approaches the topic in a slightly different way. The essays are personal and tender, but are never abused as an excuse for the author to go on about herself. The themes they explore and the experiences shared feel universal.
