In Soul of Nowhere, Craig Childs answers the call of fierce places; the more desolate the landscape, the more passionately he is drawn to it. Childs tracks a broad territory: the Sierra Madre Mountains, the canyons of Utah, the White Mountain Apache Reservation, a deserted island in the Sea of Cortez. In his extraordinary nomadic treks, the author finds the land animated and himself enlivened. Childs’s obvious love for seemingly inhospitable places redeems them for armchair travelers and outdoor adventurers alike. Black-and-white photographs and pen-and-ink drawings by the author are included. “Childs is a poet at heart.” — San Francisco Chronicle
