Jim Meskimen narrates this exceptional memoir with conviction and recognition that these words are from a composer of music. He captures the immersive text precisely with a deliberate voice and a well-paced cadence. Adams's life and work in the solitude of Alaska bring the listener an appreciation of creativity. The author's decades-long sojourn (mostly in a cabin outside of Fairbanks) was influenced by Thoreau's WALDEN. He is a committed environmentalist and gifted composer whose life's work has benefited from his two great friendships--one with conductor Gordon Wright and the other with the esteemed Alaskan poet John Haines. The title comes from one of Haines's poems. This soul-gracing work from an American original delves deeply into the intersections of ecology and art.
