About the book: From a backwoods church in Arkansas to the disappeared town of St. Thomas buried beneath the waters of Lake Mead, award–winning essayist Phyllis Barber travels roads both internal and external, reflecting upon place and perspective, ambition and loss. Inspired by Flannery O'Connor and David James Duncan, Barber adds a deeply generous and—true to her high–desert roots—down–to–earth voice to the illumination of human experience.
