About the Author

Scott Russell Sanders is the author of The Paradise of Bombs;Wilderness Plots- Tales About the Settlement of American Land;The Force of Spirit;andHunting for Hope, among several other works of fiction and nonfiction. He was a distinguished professor of English literature at Indiana University until he retired in 2009. He currently lives with his wife Ruth in Bloomington, Indiana.


This work examines the consequences of displacement in our increasingly mobile society. Sanders, a writer ( In Limestone Country , Beacon , 1991; Secrets of the Universe , LJ 11/1/91) and literature professor at Indiana University, knows the loss that comes from severing ties with the past. Like many of us, he finds that important places of his youth have been bulldozed or paved over. Having grown up in a family that moved frequently, Sanders believes strongly in the importance of putting down roots in a community. In these eight sketches, he draws from an amazing range of sources--the annotated bibliography is excellent. Although some readers may find this work a bit too ``spiritual'' at times, it should prove popular with many seeking a more settled life. Recommended for public/popular collections.-- Tim Markus, Evergreen State Coll. Lib., Olympia, Wash.

'Reflective, rhapsodic, luminous essays. . . . A wise and beautifully written book.' -Publishers Weekly, starred review
