9780874172225: The Sagebrush Ocean: A Natural History of the Great Basin (Max C. Fleischmann Series in Great Basin Natural History)

This tenth anniversary hardcover edition celebrates the Great Basin wilderness in all seasons. "The Great Basin is one of the least novelized, least painted, least eulogized of American landscapes. Stephen Trimble has opened it up with the perception of a frontier scout, but for a different set of people this time: people more eager to know than to possess, more eager to understand than utilize."-Barry Lopez, from the foreword

The Sagebrush Ocean "will be a revelation to those who have habitually steeled themselves to drive across the desert at seventy miles an hour, generally at night. They have been missing something fabulous. . . . It ought to be in the pack of every desert camper and every off-road recreationist, just to teach them respect for what they use so freely. It ought to be on the seat of every car that starts across from Salt Lake to Reno, or vice versa, to give even seventy-mile-an-hour travelers some notion of what that apparently monotonous sagebrush ocean contains of the diversity and mystery of life."-Wallace Stegner

"The Sagebrush Ocean is one beauty of a book, a triumph of regional literature of the kind we need, to relate more closely to his land of ours."-Harold Gilliam, The San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

The Great Basin desert is so little explored, so little inhabited, that an Australian journalist--and he a seasoned denizen of the Great Outback--could deem one of the region's main roadways, U.S. 50, to be "the loneliest highway in America." The vast arid expanse, comprising portions of Utah, Nevada, Oregon, California, and Idaho, has never enjoyed the cachet of the Sonoran Desert, chronicled by writers like Ed Abbey and Joseph Wood Krutch. It finds a gifted champion in Stephen Trimble, who recounts the complex and varied natural history of the Basin's ecosystems in a mere 250 oversized pages. He takes us from salt playas to mountain islands, from creosote bush valleys to aspen glens. It's a fine tour, enjoyable from first to last page, and exquisitely well illustrated.

From the Publisher:

Salt Lake City writer, photographer, and naturalist Stephen Trimble has received significant awards for his nonfiction, his photography, and his fiction. Trimble received both the Sierra Club's Ansel Adams Award and the High Desert Museum's Earle A. Chiles Award for The Sagebrush Ocean. His seventeen books on western wildlands and native peoples include: Earthtones: A Nevada Album and Words From the Land, both published by the University of Nevada Press.
